I am a multidisciplinary designer with a strong background in product accessory design with experience in various design methods including fashion design, product design, service design and graphic design. As a designer, I create innovative products through the use of 3D and 2D creative development. These products are developed by experimenting with new materials, technologies, and advanced modeling techniques that create possibilities towards impacting society. I am consistently strengthening my brand identity to better understand product, services and systems, through the use of communication, media, social culture, market trends, and consumer demands.
I was born in Los Angeles, California, but moved to New York City in 2012 to study accessory design at Parsons school of design. While studying, I interned with great companies such as Calvin Klein and Pilot Automotive, taking upon various design positions from fashion product to graphic. After graduating Parsons in 2016, I received the Joseph C. Moore Scholarship under ffany, which provided me the opportunity to attend a 13 week technical footwear pattern making course at the prestigious arsutoria school in Milan. After the course, I traveled back to nyc where I was hired as a full-time footwear designer at Sam Edelman, a well-known contemporary footwear company under caleres. After a year and a half at the company, I moved back to Milan to attend Politecnico di Milano for Laurea Magistrale (MSc) postgraduate program on Product Service System Design.
I am currently finishing my first year of the course and working towards certifications in the fields of obtaining a greater knowledge on product development, product service, directing and selling products to specific markets through design. So far, PSSD has taught me to better understand different design fields, from product to service and space to interaction, while properly creating user interface and user experiences, in order to understand product consumption and create a better consumer experience.
