Maybe You're Wondering
Who I am...

A little ABOUT ME


Hello! I'm Em, and I originate from Modesto, California, but my drive for independence and to become a designer led me to study Industrial Design and Entrepreneurship at Carleton University in Canada. 


As a designer, I work to create innovative and functional products that meet the needs of people from all walks of life. I dedicated myself to keeping curious and staying ahead of the curve with the latest modern technologies and design trends so my work is fresh and exciting. Whether it's conceptualizing an entirely new product or improving an existing one, I am passionate about using my skills to craft beautiful and effective designs that make a difference. From ideation to prototyping, my process is all about bringing ideas to life most effectively and efficiently as possible.
