Hello, my name is Aaron. I graduated from California College of the Arts with an MFA in Design, focusing on Industrial Design. My design process typically involves making, allowing me to build a functioning inflatable helmet prototype to meet the needs of bike share users.
I credit my approach to the three years prior to graduate school spent fabricating custom high-end architectural components and fixtures in New York City. Being comfortable in a shop environment allows me to prototype ideas quickly and effectively.
After interning at Stanford's Center for Design Research, I enjoy discussing the role and viability of self driving cars, smart cities and automation in general. Having been in the Silicon Valley environment for three plus years, I firmly believe emerging technology should adapt to meet our needs as people rather than the other way around.
