I am a registered architect and product designer with over 15 years of experience in complete cycles, of design, production, project management, and business development in the United States and abroad. My professional experience includes large complex buildings, award-winning products, and furniture designs for the, medical, hospitality, education, and hi-tech industries among others. I hold professional degrees in Architecture and Fine Arts (Design) from The University of Texas at Austin and a Master’s in Industrial Design from the Scuola Politecnica di Design in Milan, Italy. 

Work wise, I am best when facilitating collaboration between owners, consultants, partners, and contractors throughout all stages of Design, development, construction, manufacturing, and documentation. I have also authored and participated in the creative and art direction of multiple new, innovative, and award-winning products, product briefs, intellectual property protection(patents), marketing communications, and launch of new products to market. 

Research wise, I am most interested in the creation, development, and architecture of products and environments that place people at the center of agendas of social change. My philosophy departs from the premise that Design is both agent and interpreter of that process, and that achieving anything in this realm can only happen if we maintain a deliberate stereo thinking approach, working from as many points of views at once, and triangulating solutions methodically to hit the mark. The role of a designer is first to place emphasis on empathy before any act, and to apply through iteration and experience the appropriate craft to achieve an intended result.
