Creator.
Carving new paths.

Where I’m headed
and where I’ve come from.

I'm a creator, artist and entrepeneur based in Los Angeles making memorable and beautiful products that make people feel.

My goal is to always pursue what I believe in, learn through constant experimentation, and push my personal capabilities through practice and self reflection. This pursuit actualizes itself in the companies and products I create.

In the past I’ve been fortunate enough to work full-time at both Apple and Google where I designed next-generation computing platforms. Here I learned what it takes to design & ship world-class products.

Many years ago I also attended NYU ITP masters program which allowed me to pivot my career and mindset. At this program I learned how to apply my abilities and think critically about technology.

Much of my perspective comes from my fascination with future technologies, my desire to create, mixed with my childhood love for characters and worlds from the likes of X-Men, Pokemon, Dragon Ball and The Legend of Zelda.
