Sr. Industrial Designer
I am Sr. Industrial Designer with a BS Degree from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. I have a modern approach to my designs keeping in mind practicality and simplicity of manufacturing. I coordinate with sales and marketing teams to help make new product ideas become a reality with full understanding of the target consumer and the buyer's price points. I work with a heavy emphasis in organization, leading projects and understand timelines involved in getting a product to market. I am a Certified Solidworks Associate in Mechanical Design and show proficiency in different manufacturing techniques involved with most consumer products. I spent 4 years as a model maker for Lasko Products Inc., hand fabricating 3D printed SLS and SLA parts to create working prototypes of fans and heaters, many of which were my own designs. I also maintained the 3D Printers as well as slicing the 3D parts for each daily print. My showcased work from Lasko Products Inc. and NewView Gifts and Accessories are all currently sold to major retailers and in production.
I run a freelance industrial design company called DEV-3D that has worked with several clients from vastly different areas of the consumer product industry. If you are interested in having me help you with your product idea and need concept ideation, or 3D modeling please visit www.DEV-3D.com
