About me

 

My journey with design began with “Third Wave” by Alvin Toffler, who made me realise that the world is driven by data, yet uses ‘tools’ created during industrial revolution. This system does not fit our society anymore. “Third wave” stimulated my need to participate in shaping the world, orienting it to the current environment and its inhabitants, us. My quest to use design as a tool to shape the world has taken me from interviewing globally renowned designers like Karim Rashid to visiting factories such as Kartell or Aston Martin, highlighted by a client led project for Artemide, facilitated by CSM. Whether falling at the speed of 200 km/hr from an altitude of 4 km or diving into the Pacific Ocean, it does not matter what I occupy myself with for source of inspiration, imagination acts as my constant companion. Here I stand, young and fearless - looking forward to the latest challenge - the world of design might have to offer - and I believe that being a designer is my super power.
