About

Where will Augmented Reality take us next, who will come up with the Design Fiction for the future generations? Questions like this have driven me in my insatiable quest to further my research in media and graphic design.

My experience in design has taught me to efficiently tackle projects ambitiously and creatively. This has lead to greater skills in organization, leadership, and communication.

The drive to be creative has always been my defining quality since I was a child and I wish to show it in my work.
