From my experience at OCADU I learned a variety of fabrication techniques in various mediums, my time at SKETCH taught me to work within a collective interacting with local and transient artists to learn and develop. The Design Exchange Museum fed my love for sharing the evolution of Art and Design with the public opening a discussion about interesting topics; enhancing the appreciation of aesthetics and beauty in culture.

I have instincts to sense moments in time when everything becomes ready to grab and swing; spontaneity feels like catching rung after rung on a flying trapeze and knowing they will be there.
