My love of gardening has been an influence on me as a person and as a designer. I am an advocate for sustainability and care deeply about our environment.

As a product designer, I believe it is my duty to design for our future and take into consideration every aspect of a design – from start to finish. From the material from which it is made to how it is ultimately disposed of.

Minors in sustainability and contemporary clay allowed me as a designer to understand how my favorite medium clay can be used as a sustainable material to replace more harmful production methods.
