I am an inquisitive and passionate designer who merges an analytical reasoning with a human-centered approach. I believe in the empowering commitment of design to prompt meaningful relationships among people, spaces and objects.

I am eager to explore design in diverse forms focusing on storytelling within the development and communication of the project.
