"Do well by doing good"
I spent most of my undergraduate educational experience obsessed with nanotechnology, but switched focus to mechanical design during my senior year after becoming familiar with IDEO. Shortly after having the epiphany that my true passion is for design, I became involved with the UC Davis D-Lab and worked on a modular, solar-powered lighting system to compete with kerosene and candles in Zambia.
After graduating I spent two years on a spiritual journey in Brazil.
