Hey! I’m a mechanical engineer who just graduated from USC. Ever since I was a kid I wanted to be an inventor, and I found that design lets me live out that dream! I particularly enjoy human-centric design that emphasizes uplifting marginalized voices – I’ve found that when I get to see my ideas really help people, that’s when I feel fulfilled in my work.


What are you most looking forward to in the MDes program?

I’m really looking forward to meeting other designers and figuring out what niche of design most engages me!
