I am a very versatile designer that masters both conceptual and technical aspects of the design process. I have a very playful approach and always strive to give to the product some characteristic features and personality that will make it stand out from the crowd.I have worked within many categories of product design, from futuristic electrical cars to pink horse stables for Lego. Working with new fields and continuing to learn, these are very motivating factors for me, and naturally keeping having fun along the way.
