About
I believe that design is an innate human nature. Every decision and action in our everyday lives is design. Designers are individuals that are slightly more conscious about this nature, who are willing to ask questions and bring suggestions to our everyday lives.
I am an industrial designer experienced in furniture, lighting and consumer product design. I always like to take a step out of my comfort zone and explore new opportunities and feel very fortunate to be in the design industry for all the new challenges to come. As a designer who loves this industry, I aim to be an innovative and considerate designer who can be a positive influence to our society.
