As a designer I aspire to be artistic and put all my skills to use creatively, economically, and scientifically to provide individuals with unique products and experiences that leave a lasting impression on them while enhancing

the quality of their lives.

My design philosophy: A good designer shows people 

what they already expect to see, but a great designer is able to amaze them by showing them something new, something that enables them to be better than who they were before encountering the designer’s work.
