Product design started for me with machining. After completing an apprenticeship program I eventually became a Tool and Die Maker. While in this position I was involved in product design making prototypes. Over time I found my way to Industrial Design and became part of the product development team.
While working for a Dept. of Defense contractor I expanded out into other industries and startups. Variety in working with different companies has helped to create a broad base of knowledge that has informed each design today. Eventually I relocated to Silicon Valley to make an impact on people's lives.
Currently residing in San Francisco I am a graduate of California College of the Arts in the Industrial Design program. I am an officer for the Industrial Design Society of America, San Francisco. The Bay Area has proved to be inspirational and I have enjoyed collaborating with all of the amazing designers that help to push each other forward.
