About

I’ve always had a passion for designing and making things. From newspaper shoes as a five-year-old to hand sewn clothing in high school to my current work at Five Ply Design, I’m happiest when I’m creating something. I am always interested in side projects and other new opportunities, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Outside of Industrial Design, I enjoy playing ultimate frisbee, knitting socks, cooking new recipes, traveling, and biking around Seattle.
