"Industrial design is one of the fastest-growing careers. As far as implementation and specializations, the future will be designed by a new generation, some of whom come through my classes. I love to teach because every day brings new challenges, and I like to surround myself with smart, problem-solving individuals. The word 'no' is an inspiration to work harder. Coming to work is an adventure; the students provide endless thoughts and ideas that trigger creativity and innovation."
