Are you a designer? Why or why not?
Yes. I design clothes and furniture :)

One word to describe your take on design:
Ubiquity.

The last thing you made:
I recently made this double cinder block table v1 for a jewelry company called HerChildren that turned out well for a display table.

The next thing you want to make:
Something involving plants or sound, maybe a mixture of both. I'm still workshopping it.

A designed object you adore:
Those old winding mills used for textiles.

A designed object you can’t stand the sight of:
Modern condominiums.

A moment of pure creative joy:
Reading a book that makes you inspired and introspective about your creativity. I'm currently finding this while reading The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron.



When we say “designing the future,” what comes to mind?
Making something utilitarian with sustainable and different materials. I love the idea of recontextualization, so the idea of an old cabinet becoming a chair or vice versa is so appealing.

If you could show your work to anyone in the world, who would it be?
Bruno Munari

Your aesthetic embodied as a...

sound?
Minor 9th Chord on a Juno-106




color?
Bright Linen

texture?
Museum grade concrete.

Your *grail*: if you could own one iconic design work, what would it be?
It's a bit lofty, but the Great Gardens of Las Pozas. I'd just live in there in a tent or something until my old age.




What’s next for you?
More refinement on my vision and more storytelling. I'm excited!

Pink Essay is a creative studio & platform re-designing design culture. We make experiences + exhibitions + archives, synthesizing the digital and physical.

We believe that good design is democratic, accessible, antiracist, sustainable and collaborative.
Design culture is on the move: people are excited and ready to see what we can make when we believe in the power of objects as tools of human growth and community connection.

We’re here to make connections, tell stories, and build a new design culture.
