Executive Director of Design
Asia Pacific Design 2005-2007
"The different regions and markets of the world are truly unique, but good design cuts through boundaries. It connects culture, imagination, and beauty with function."
"Design is all about creating an emotional connection with people. It's not enough that a product works well… it should bring real joy."
"Luxury is more than a collection of rich, beautiful materials... You need to create a compelling experience."
"You have to take risks. You need to create a vision that's just out of reach, and do the hard work of figuring out how to get there- and inspire engineering and manufacturing partners to share the vision. That's how to really change things."
"Every project is an opportunity to learn and grow. Experiment...learn what works and what doesn't- and do better."
