I’m an Innovation and Design strategist, specializing in creative design solutions that focus on human centered design. I’m passionate about people and understanding how empathy, culture and technology shape the world around us.
I hold a professional MArch degree in Architecture from GSAPP,Columbia University in the City of New York, a BA Honours degree in Architecture from the University of Kent,Canterbury and a Postgraduate degree in Design for Innovation Strategy from IED BARCELONA.
I have worked in NYC and Barcelona in both the Architectural and Innovation Design Strategy fields on projects in the US, South Korea, Spain and the MiddleEast region.
As an advocate for the Design thinking process and for finding ways to use empathy as a tool for change, design and innovation, I enjoy experimenting through workshops and with other creatives to find playful ways of applying the process to enhance creativity.
Due to my mixed educational background, I have a unique understanding of both the physical spatial and digital design worlds. I am able to not only think creatively, but also have the tools to transform ideas into clear and tangible realities, whether it is in 3d physical or digital space.
