What is your hometown?
What originally attracted you to Otis?
Originally, Fashion Design.
How did you decide on your major?
Though I thought I would study Fashion Design, I became interested in Illustration. I switched to Product Design because a friend advised me that it was a more lucrative career.
What was your final senior project?
The mission was to create easy, simple “ready-to-assemble” playful chair sets. I thought of them as a way to escape the fast-paced and stressful work lives we lead. I also wanted to explore the limitless power of nature to express my own emotions. I want my works to be valued not only for their function but also as works of art.
Most fun/influential class?
My first Product Design class with Kristen Foster helped me understand that basic elements such as lines and planes can be organized in particular ways, and that balance and color can improve the overall aesthetic.
How did L.A. affect your education?
Living in L.A. is like living in the airport, because you experience and learn about diff rent cultures. I feel like L.A. is my second hometown. L.A has everything that I need for practicing design.
How did Otis affect your work/life?
Otis is like my warm home. We care about each other, help each other, and influence each other. We share thoughts, ideas, happiness, and growth.
What will you remember?
Every time I walked into the studio and saw my desk, I had a sense of belonging. I miss my desk!
What would you tell new students?
Otis is a family to me, and will be your family too. Otis will take care of you no matter where you are from or what problem you have. I am very proud that I am a part of Otis. Otis will not only lead you to be a great designer but will also help you to find yourself.
