Fast and iterative, like how it should be
I'm great at quick iterations and I quite like the rigour. I'm so fast that I'm learning to slow down—to pause, think and learn to start questioning the 'why'.
I'm efficient, but impatient.
I'm unlearning my speed and relearning the unhurried deliberate charm of designing.
"You're really fast.... play to your strength of efficiency."

"I'm a team player" says everyone. Yawn...
Team player is easy. But I take it up a notch. I foster collaboration, bring people together, rally a team and achieve goals.
I've a proven track record of fantastic working relationships with engineers. I'd say it's natural—but it's the intentional effort to understand their challenges and hard work at closing every feedback loop.
Truth is, I just got lucky with all the great engineers I've worked with.
"She was crucial at aligning the understanding of the flow between design and engineering."

Supercharged with jargons
Armed with a former design education in Industrial Design—I've spent my formative years picking up industry jargons and design buzz words.service design works3d works
Who cares about the meaning! We can throw them around in meetings and confuse the heck out of these non-designers, pfft!
What a force to be reckon with.
I often imagine and think about subjects and objects in spaces. With an itch to doodle everything I perceive, it first led me to industrial design and eventually into product design.
