About MeI am a college student, designer and developer. I am currently employed by the University of Chicago's Computation Institute. Before my current job I worked for my high school's IT department and the University of Chicago's Academic Technologies.
DesignI'm currently studying Industrial Design at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Since middle school I've had an eye for how existing products are shaped (designed) and how I would change them. When I started searching for colleges I discovered the field of Industrial Design. In addition to how products look I like to know how they work. I've taught myself about the latest high-tech materials and how to wire circuitry for microcontrolling. I'm taking Material Science and Mechanical/Industrial Engineering classes to further broaden my knowledge in order to make products that look good and work well. You can see some of my designs and other work in my portfolio.
PlatformsI mainly use Mac OS X as it is has the cleanest, most intuitive user interface that is backed by a UNIX core. I use Linux regularly, but mostly from the command line remotely. I use Windows when I have to.
ToolsBelow is a list of some of the applications and programming languages I know, many of which I use daily, to accomplish what I need for design or development.
- Adobe Photoshop
- Adobe Illustrator
- Autodesk Maya
- Autodesk Inventor
- Google SketchUp
- Final Cut Pro
