Industrial Design

My goal is to apply my knowledge, imagination, inspiration and passion in order to design and develop innovative solutions addressing human needs. I hope to broaden my experience as a designer and at the same time contribute to improving the way people live. I want to inspire and be inspired… to imagine… and then to make it real.
Work Experience

Interests and Attitude Sailing, hang gliding, snow skiing, sailplanes and backpacking, are some of the activities I enjoy. I approach each with inspired passion and dedication, as I do exploring the possibilities of design. I've lived overseas for several years and love to travel - fueling new ideas and fresh perspectives. I like a challenge, and am always open for a new learning experience, independently, or together within a team.
