Industrial Designer
San Francisco


I am an Industrial Designer studying in San Francisco. I had no experience whatsoever in the field of design when I first started school at the Academy of Art University. My design was basically driven by the inspirations that I got from luxury brands. It has always been my goal to take those products that focus on the functionality and give them an added element of design while improving the functionality as well. So when I had a chance to design a knee brace, I immediately decided to design it for Tag Heuer. Using the highest grade materials and innovative methods like BOA for strapping, I created this knee brace. This knee brace is designed to scale, with a working hinge mechanism, 3D printed and painted with utmost precision to develop the final model. This is just the beginning, I still have a lot to learn.
