Visual Autobiography

A tactile and visual experience of my personal interests and guiding forces for my design practice. This collection of objects and images are what nourishes me.

I am fueled by color, texture, materiality, and tactility. When beginning a project, my brain immediately directs to material and color it will exist in. Then, how it will function within itself and then within the larger system.

I am fueled by nature’s complex systems and beauty. Sustainable thinking is always at the forefront of my design process. Sustainability should be integrated into everything we do, from bringing reusable bottles, to considering how manufacturing affects the environment. I strongly believe that designing is a privilege and we have to insure that our products have a positive impact, not a negative one.

I am fueled by inspirational work by IDEO, activism by U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and public engagement by Humans of New York.

Lastly, creating digital lists of inner thoughts and inspirations allows me to categorized my findings, which is why my moodboard is organized this way.
