"I wish I would have done it this way the first time."
Jorge Pardo

If the human race could start over, would we do any better?

Intrigued by indecipherable cycles of cause-and-effect, I seek room for organic experimentation in everyday life. Good ideas don't just fall from the sky - they evolve. I combine science, art and design to awake possibilities.

I want to live in my own little world. You want to live in yours. Why not? My current work pursues adaptable, magical, manufacturable systems for domestic living.
