I studied Architecture at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, where I 3D printed my first design in 2009. Since then, I have applied my 3D digital design skill-set in professional work ranging from jewelry and accessory design, to fashion and product design. I like talking about the future.

Make Mode is a digital design and fabrication studio specializing in 3D printing, laser cutting, and 3D design. Started in 2013, their goal is to help the creative ecosystem of New York City develop, prototype, and produce ideas for physical objects and products – from concept to concrete.

By using design software tools and digital manufacturing machines that allow for creation of highly custom objects, Make Mode aims to produce objects of greater intrinsic value both locally and on demand. Their mission is two-fold: reduce the cost of innovation & make more with less.
