I am a multifunctional Designer and a Design Program Manager based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. I focus on leveraging design thinking for problem-solving. I believe that a quality design is a result of thoughtful planning and to achieve the desired solutions, which are both orderly and flexible, design skills should be aided with efficient management and execution.
Here is a synopsis of my experiences in different facets of design:
With the basis of design thinking, my focus is to create meaningful experiences for users by placing human perspective at the core, integrating analytical skills, creating coherent design processes, and producing design management solutions.
HOW DO I DO IT?
Create an insightful story.
Conduct meaningful conversations.
DESIGN PROGRAM MANAGEMENT
As a Design Program Manager, I work with timelines, processes, and frameworks, alongside facilitating an environment for the designers to flourish their creativity. My focus is on building a strong network with relevant stakeholders, communicating periodically with members at all levels, and working together towards the execution of design product and services. This model, including efficient planning and management, can set the basis of quality design offerings.

WHAT DOES A PROJECT WORKFLOW LOOK LIKE?
BRAINSTORMING AND CONCEPTUALIZING
For my projects focused on Interior Design during the initial stages of my career, I believe that the designs should reflect the individual needs and aspirations of the client. I strive to create bespoke design solutions tailored to every project and ensure that the customer requirements are met, whilst considering the time and budget parameters.
