Design Research + Furniture Design + Strategic Design
Strategically managing issues and democratically creating solutions
My calling as a creative is to democratize all aspects of design through leadership. I strive to be a role-model, to both my colleagues and the general public, whose medium of communication is design. My skill set comes out most in the early stages of the process where I dig deep in research, using empathy in navigating ambiguity and managing the issues at hand. I always ensure that I am solving the right problem and that I understand it fully. I believe in the power of co-design as a learning-through-participation approach to creation. This way, everyday people assume stewardship of their designed environment and develop an emotional and ideological relationship with it.
