Industrial Design, Jonathan Ive

Hello The Verge public, I am writing this because I am planning to study Industrial Desing and would like to ask for your help. I write this thread on this topic because I admire apples desing language and of course, Jonathan Ive.

I need help from you guys if you know anything about Ive, what was his inspiration, what is this career really about and how did he reach such an amazing company.

Also, if anyone has any idea on how to contact this man it would be great, an interview with him would be my dream. I am still unsure about studying this but I would love to revolutionize design within the technology industry. Well anyways, if you have anything to say about this career, about apple or Ive please post it!
