SANAZ . . .
Sanaz is a Persian name meaning “full of grace,” “Persian princess,”
or “with pride.” It is originally the name of a small red flower.
I am from a science-oriented family for whom art was foreign. My farther was a civil engineer and my mom is a professor of nursing midwifery. I was the black sheep of the family,deciding upon something else: studying art. I started with painting, playing guitar, making sculptures and then in college shifted direction towards design.
My character is like an “otter.”
When it comes to challenges, I’m conservative, calculating and cooperative.
I am polished, poised, optimistic, trusting and sociable with people.
My reaction to the pace of the environment is stable.
I love the uniqueness of each human being.
It’s pretty difficult to make me angry.
I always prefer a team approach.
It seems I often use gestures when I talk.
I enjoy participating in decision making processes.
I studied industrial design both as my bachelor and master’s degree. It has been a fun, challenging path thus far and I have stayed true to the adage, “love what you do. “
Design is my work-hobby and I combine diverse passions to design products that add spice to human life. I have learned to design with bravery, embracing the risk of exploring new sectors while consciously cultivating an integrative mindset.
Finding this passion was a gift from graduate school. Good design happens when you can distinguish various layers of reality and reach the most compelling one. This requires you to be a good listener, observer and analyzer. Cultivating these skills -- and having an innate interest in people -- makes research a very pleasing activity to me. I love seeking patterns among people and generating insights and ideas with those patterns.
