He draws inspiration from patterns and forms found in nature and everyday life. His best solutions are often a result from conversations and collaborations with other people. He is passionate about technology, furniture and housewares and their relationship to humans. Recently, Betuel interned at Jordan Mozer and Associates, an architecture and design studio, where he learned how to fabricate several furniture and decorative items for two hospitality projects.
