Growing up in multi-cultural contexts through the 90s and early 2000s, I find myself being able to empathize with new cultures, societies and oddly, technologies. Languages and behavior of these different cultures has always been a curiosity for me and has been a way for me to understand what makes people tick.
I have been through engineering school and most recently design school at ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, CA to understand the languages of feasibility and creativity in order to take the best of both worlds(and some more) to explore ideas and implications of design.
My goal is to lead teams at the intersection of meaningful research, empathetic design, find or develop appropriate technological enablers, but more importantly think with implications.
I take a continuous-learning approach, learning the good, the bad and the ugly from different domains to empathize with each design function for the benefit of the end-user and relevant stakeholders. I believe this can be achieved by working towards a multi-disciplinary vocabulary of human behavior and its research, empathetic design, appropriate technology and positive business.
