User Experience / Industrial Designer at Comcast
Design | Greater Philadelphia Area, US
My Design Philosophy:
Design should be based on people, and their interaction with the world around them. I research the user wants and needs to better understand them and their behavior, which I integrate to design products that will enhance the everyday life of the user. As a designer, I have always been creative, imaginative, passionate, and eager to solve problems in a unique way. I aim to design products that balance form and function, while maintaining the ideal blend of usability, innovation and art.
