Born in Zurich, Switzerland in 1996, I have lived in various cities throughout Europe, and North and South America (Panama City, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Miami, Lausanne). I became interested in design at a young age and pursued my powerful aspiration by remaining involved in topic-specific art classes throughout middle and high-school, and via several extracurricular programs to enrich my studies, such as technical drawing, painting, photography, and architecture. After my acceptance in 2014 to RISD, I vigorously continue to enhance and hone my skills and techniques as an Industrial Design major with an interest in Furniture Design.
