I am an interdisciplinary designer and artist. I have an unconditional love for raw material, from wood to fiber. Having some experience in woodworking and sewing, I give priority to local, renewable or reclaimed materials to create in various spheres: from space and furniture design to garments and accessories. In 2014 I received a Concordia Undergraduate Student Research Awards (CUSRA) supervised by Professor Carmela Cucuzzella. In 2015 I completed my BFA in Design in the Department of Design and Computation Arts at Concordia University. This academic adventure led me toward a profound desire to learn more about origin an transformation of raw material considering ecological and social implication. I am now continuing my study in the Master of Design at the same institution. My intention is to actively participate on society changes concerning consumerist behaviors. "I think that we must design like humans should live: in total consciousness that we are all linked, as we are in a constant relation with Earth."
