As a product design director, my background in cutting-edge contemporary art & design practice to hands-on experience with the IT industry has made me professional, creative, and fearless to try something new and unknown. My career orientation seeks to move my research beyond the fascination with sophisticated technological tools or design methodologies themselves, towards meaningful and intelligent growth and impact upon society. I consider myself a ‘comprehensive designer’ as defined by R. Buckminster Fuller, “The comprehensive designer is an emerging synthesis of artist, inventor, mechanic, objective economist, and evolutionary strategist.” This converged and T-shaped interdisciplinary approach and synthesis of roles make me a well-suited thought leader.
