Throughout my life, I’ve considered myself a “Jane-of-all-trades.” I quickly pick up, and excel at, most activities and tasks I encounter, although I don’t back down from the things I’m not good at, or things that do not come naturally. I find facing challenges and learning new things to be extremely rewarding.
I was put here on this earth not only to create things, but to create order. For me, solving problems is not just a design task, but a life task. I’m always doing it, the wheels are always turning, even when I don’t mean to. I am always building, creating, documenting, planning.
Whether in design or otherwise, I tend to arrive at solutions in the same way. I create order by making logical, methodical, and creative design choices based on facts. I support these design decisions with carefully curated details. As I see it, the key to a design’s success is balance. I believe that form and function must work hand in hand to create designs that both work, and are instinctual yet stimulating for the audience.
One of the most important things to me is my family history and heritage. My family experiences are very significant to me as they have made me who I am personally, and as a designer. Because of this, I have an enormous sense of pride for who I am and where I come from.
