I believe that design is the glue that holds societies and cultures together. Everything in your pockets, your environment, and even the things you think about most were likely designed with intention and pragmatism. My sweet design cup-of-joe is when problem-solving and elegance find a happy marriage. More and more I aspire to not only be a great designer but mature as a human centered design thinker pushing the limits on innovation. Change is all around us and designing for change is an exciting frontier that's slowly coming into the light.  

I want to design anything and everything and I hope to explore more of "what can design do next" in my career. If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to reach out at shawnterasaki@gmail.com.
