ABOUT

My name is Leo

I want to design things that will help minimize the harmful impacts our society has on the environment. The areas I am most interested in are:

  • sustainable energy and food production

  • ocean engineering and floating structures

  • design for climate change

  • origami and transforming structures

  • parametric and geometric design

  • digital fabrication practices

I grew up in Seattle, Washington in a diverse household. I studied East Asian Linguistics at Carleton College, and after graduating I lived in Beijing, China for several years, working, traveling, and learning. I returned to the United States to redirect my creative energy, such that I'm able to better contribute to solving some of the most challenging issues that we face today. I completed a Masters of Industrial Design at Georgia Institute of Technology in 2020, and currently develop the SeaWeaver project with the Nippon Foundation Ocean Nexus Center.
