I am interested in the intersection of Design and Sustainability. How can our environment and technologies help us develop better ways of living on this planet.

Emily Carr’s design program puts a strong emphasis on a user centric design approach to problem space which has translated into my work. What excites me about a project is being in the unknown and exploring both tangentially and in depth in certain areas. The ability to work interdisciplinary is key to well rounded project. As part of my thesis project I collaborated with a communication designer to give myself the experience of working with a multidisciplinary design approach to a problem space. Here I learned to expand my skill set into visual design, as well as the coordination and communication involved in working in a team effectively.
