When tradition meets innovation and businesses clash with old regulations... a story of Airbnb provoking new frameworks for a new generation. I will totally bow down to Airbnb. http://ow.ly/DTNJ9 
In just six years, home-rental company Airbnb has grown exponentially—and attracted increasing regulatory scrutiny. Cofounder and CEO Brian Chesky explains why the company and cities must work together. A McKinsey & Company article.

"Technology and the manifested 'brilliance of crowds'" are disrupting traditional hierarchies in the corporate environment. Building a lean, versatile, and distributed network, versus top-down organisation, distributes power and knowledge that empowers organisations to outperform competitors who exploit their control (and machine).
As artificial intelligence takes hold, what will it take to be an effective executive? A McKinsey Quarterly article.

Why designers, especially product designers, need to evolve for the Internet of Things, and become hybrid designers that integrate disciplines of service, web, visual, and interactive design - thinking, adapting, and growing with change.

We've discovered the power of storytelling, but why, scientifically speaking, do we love good storytelling? http://ow.ly/DHJqc

Story
Tagline
Lost nomad on a global voyage.
Introduction
I'm a curious explorer by nature. Since I began crawling, I also started travelling the world with family, friends and eventually on my own. These experiences amplified my thirst for adventure and imbued me with a daring spirit, ready to dive and immerse in new cultures and environments. 

I'm a recent graduate of Parsons' Product Design program. I see design as a point of discussion and tool to challenge, change and shape the world. I'm in my final year at Eugene Lang where I will be receiving my second degree in Culture & Media Studies - without culture, what is the point of design?

I'm a passionate design researcher and believe a deep commitment to understanding people can make better informed decisions. I enjoy hands-on engagement and the active pursuit of knowledge and inspiration. I'm an educator and lifelong learner, passionate and driven.

I'm also a Business Designer, designing relationships at Yeh IDeology, a Rapid Prototyping Technician and Assistant exploring the future at Parsons' Academic Resource Center, a maker and educator at Nerdy Derby, and a tireless adventurer playing out on nature's big playground.

I love meeting people, so don't hesitate to reach out and say hello!
