Hi, my name is Jess. I am a designer with a goal to improve the quality of life of people and the environment. I graduated from Parsons School of Design's MFA Industrial Design Program and am currently working as a Designer in NY. 


Early in school I was captivated by the perspectives designers gained for a project through research and imagination. And how they used that to achieve a holistic view of design directives, limits, and possibilities. Throughout my graduate studies, I further diversified my design skillset and developed a passion for sustainability. This has led me to found Le Motif Design studio, where I experiment with biomaterials within a home product perspective. 

I realize real world needs but also research connections for areas of overlap where needs and desires can be met to go beyond the user's expectations. I create products that question the expectations of the product's traditional use but add value by meeting the user's lifestyle needs. 

If you have questions or want to collaborate with me, please feel free to reach out.
