About Me

I'm passionate about the human mind and behavior; particularly how we engage and interact with the objects around us. Everything we interact with is a consequence of design, either naturally or artificially. All products should aim to strike the perfect balance between function and design to deliver delight. Products that fail to delight often do so as a result of imbalance. At the end of every product is a user, and the inability to understand users is a contributor to imbalance. I try very hard to empathize with the users of products I design so that I can move towards finding that pefect balance.

I'm also a firm believer that everything we create is connected, and to move the world forward, we must combine science and the arts in unique ways. The next revolution will be at the intersections of art and technology. Empowering our youth with access to STEAM (STEM + Arts) education and resources will pave the way for the next generation of great thinkers, leaders, and makers.
