'Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -'
I chose to climb through the trees instead.
First line, Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken

My designs are driven by my passion to help understand and improve peoples' lives and the environment we live in.

My experimental project, Growing a Product, spawned from the desire to address the environment's degradation, including natural resource depletion and climate change; as well as the high-speed rate of consumer culture where many objects have a short lifespan. It embodies the search for solutions to potentially decelerate consumer culture and develop a new process for object creation via growth.
