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. 
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.
