About me

Bio

When I was growing up, my dad would always bring home gadgets and I loved playing with them.

Now, I’m studying Industrial Design at the University of Washington. The program is multidisciplinary and I love getting to explore the intersection of Industrial and Interaction Design.

After this, I’ll be out there somewhere making gadgets.
