Human Interface + Design Strategy
I’d like to think of myself as problem solver. I'm a product designer who strives to make this complex world a little simpler. I’m a curious person by nature, and my desire is to learn about or be a part of missions bigger than myself.
Being the son of an architect and nonprofit executive, I’m lured by using the reasoned design process in an effort to make the world a better place. I’ve been tremendously influenced by family and friends, in particular my Armenian grandfather, an entrepreneur who brought cosmetics to Turkey when Ataturk removed the veil; and my other grandfather, who became a professor despite the hardships of being born to impoverished and illiterate parents in the Florida swamplands.
I was born and raised in New York City, later moving to Connecticut, and then studying industrial design at RISD in Providence, Rhode Island. I'm currently in San Francisco working with an amazing team at Clara.
Some of my daily rituals include drumming, exploring, traveling, connecting others to one another, engaging in ‘What If?’ conversations, spending time with loved ones, and people watching.
Always looking to collaborate :)
