I began my focus with art and design in high school. I excelled in advanced art and drafting and experimented with design software in a course called Environmental and Spatial Technology (E.A.S.T.)
At that point I pursued applied arts in Industrial Design with plans to attend Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. However early in college I transitioned to Mechanical Engineering to combine both form and function when designing.
The use of Industrial Design methods in conjunction with my Mechanical Engineering background gives me a unique advantage in the standard design process.
