About me

Design Engineer with 3+ years of experience in B2B, B2C markets. The desire to understand human behaviour based on real-time experiences, observations and interactions has been a driving force for my work as a designer. My work in startups and small businesses has provided me with knowledge and hands-on experience in many industries such as; Automobile (Electric Vehicles), Healthcare (Assistive Technology), Industrial designing, Business Innovation, Strategy, furniture designing, Product Management, Design Thinking, Business Model Development, Team Management, Social Impact, Product Design, and Manufacturing. I strongly believe that Objects, People, and Environments never exist in isolation from one another, but rather always co-exist together and therefore need to be understood and designed so that they work together. Being a maker and doer motivates me to put my ideas into action, make objects, think about the future and adapt to what's new.
