MY DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
Design is a vessel for change and improvement. It gets me excited about the potential of the future. I believe in a sustainable approach where design considers the entire life cycle of a product including the materials used to make it, the manufacturing process, distribution, and disposal. I believe that the future of design lies in reusing materials from past products as raw material for new ones.
Exposing me to the arts was very important to my parents. I danced as soon as I could walk. I took art classes as soon as I could hold a pencil. I love watching plays and singing along to musicals. My favorite pastime as a child was dressing up: pink tutu, princess gown, wedding dress, bee leotard. I was rarely in real clothes. After experimenting with numerous forms of creative expression, I found my niche in design.
