Every experience has exposed me to various arts, culture, and design that I am truly grateful for. To this day, nothing is more fulfilling than transforming the beauty of nature into a creative work of art.

"Still Life" was the theme for IFE's 9th Annual Iron Designer Competition in Chicago on June 21, 2016, hosted by emcees Pieter Landman and Jacob McCall AIFD. Competitors were tasked with incorporating produce into designs inspired by 17th and 18th century still life paintings, with an innovative twist.
