Showcase & Discover Creative Work

I'm an industrial designer. The subtleties of human behavior and emotions fascinates me.

I enjoy watching the way people respond to forms and interactions and am interested in turning such observations - especially the inner whispers that are easily overlooked - into meaningful design opportunities.

Combining passions for aesthetics, problem-solving and mechanisms, my work attempts to distill complex problems into smart, simple solutions that resonate with human habits and emotions.
