The tools we use to create our world is what separates us from animals. It is in this distinction that I see the value of design; that we are responsible for the very evolution of our species. This is why I believe design must work at the intersection of what is possible through technology and what is best for humanity. My work attempts to define that space and occupy it.

My practice is shaped by a wide variety of experiences in which I have observed people, place, and technology in context, from working in massive half-automated automotive factories in Detroit to skateboarding the back streets of Istanbul.

I am an engineer, designer, and educator who wishes to positively impact the world. I currently run a studio practice in Brooklyn and teach at Parsons School of Design.
