Find links to recent work below:
is a proposal for a medium-long term installation at LentSpace, located in lower Manhattan. Think of it as an oasis of calm amidst a busy area of the city.
is an experimental family of lighting designs which propose alternative standards for luxury lighting by cross-pollinating disparate design dialects.
Open Table Tennis
is a proposal for a two-part series of public ping pong tables. Meant as a study in design for public space as well as an exercise in visualization techniques (rendering, compositing).
An Are.na channel which I started as
an archive of exceptional parks and public spaces, near and far.
is a second installation proposal for LentSpace. A flexible installation defined by a series of modular, curvilinear aluminum benches.
An ongoing study of transom/clerestory windows imagined through a series of interior and exterior renderings.
Some Grasshopper sketches, for personal use and commission.
A catalogue of wall works and sculptures created over the past 2 years using various experimental digital fabrication techniques.
is a chair I designed and built in 2015
is a summary of my findings while earning my degree at RISD.
Link to my Behance profile, if you’re curious.
A survey of bristle-bearing tools. Resulted in a collection of my own designs, ranging from absurd to practical. Part
of my degree project.
A collection of weights, intended to investigate ways in which weight manifests in functional objects across a range of categories.
A series of wall-storage objects, and the first installment in my degree project. The intent of the investigation was to uncover potential new typologies within the broad territory of wall storage.
Sketches from current sketchbooks. Updated periodically.
