I am an Industrial Design graduate from OCAD University in Toronto, Ontario. My interest in design stems from a desire to bring concepts and experiences into reality through the processes of conceptual ideation, digital outlining and tangible prototyping. My design process involves researching and understanding the core user values in order to inform the final product and experience. I am proficient in brainstorming in a variety of ways to create diverse concepts, understanding the core needs necessary for a successful project, physical prototyping with a variety of materials, and excel at utilizing software to finalize and present projects.
Beyond design I am also an active musician who writes and records original songs independently and collaboratively. These interests gave the inspiration for my Industrial Design thesis which aimed to democratize the instrument building process for an emerging maker culture.
