My other work
Formally educated as an Industrial Designer, I started my career working for some of New York's leading studios, such as Smart Design, Ecco Design, Curve ID, among others. There I got first-hand experience in approaching design strategically and becoming an advocate for users and businesses to achieve success. When I launched my own studio, I applied this approach to the world of consumer packaged goods working and decor, operating through two offices that worked with different tiers of clients.
