Bio

"A Designer: 
Design is more to me than just a system of visual aesthetics: it is the process of discovery, tinkering, and working towards the transparency of perfection with form and function. Some of the most important parts of my design vocabulary are "what if," "how to," "I love," and "Do."

A Developer: 
I do front-end and some back-end development, bridging the gap between right brain creativity and left brain logic. I have a 360 view on projects from start to finish, infusing functionality into form from the inception of an idea to its fully realized final product.

A Educator:
As an instructor, I believe it is my duty to deliver content, tools, and training that foster critical engagement, effective problem-solving skills, group communication, lively discussion and research, and learning how to learn beyond the traditional classroom."
