CONCEPT • STRATEGY • DESIGN
As a Filipino Canadian citizen raised in Vancouver, I started my design career after receiving a Bachelor of Design degree from Emily Carr University in 2008 and quickly transitioned into the manufacturing and product design sectors. My interest in design peaked with a new fascination with the evolving transportation design trends and aesthetics. I became intrigued on how design can influence emotional and practical aspects in moving people from A to B. With this curiosity I was determined to get the best training from Art Center’s Transportation Design program in 2012.

Effortlessly, I pursued my passion with tremendous knowledge, wisdom, and endurance and quickly diversified my skills in advanced technologies, concept strategies, materials science, hand sketching, and 3D development. After learning so much from my peers, mentors, instructors, sponsors, and internships, I am ready to use my ArtCenter experience to solve problems, explore market opportunities, and push design strategies in challenging tomorrow’s transportation design needs.
