New York City, New York
I grew up building and making things and went on to study engineering. During my first year of college I found a passion for art that led me to study architecture and then product design.
I work from my home studio in a Manhattan high-rise overlooking the Hudson River. Half of the space is dedicated to digital work and sketching while the other half is filled with tools and materials for prototyping.
