My approach to design development is not bound by just one methodology or design process, but is fueled by being receptive to dynamic discovery. Through empathetic consideration for all aspects of a problem, inspiration can be uncovered equally from user research insights, manufacturing, technology, or through environmental and social impact awareness. The development of deep empathy for all stakeholders is key to creating truly meaningful and innovative design solutions.
