I am now working on a brand specific team, focused on making Bell Bike product.
In this roll I get to focus my efforts on building world class bike helmets for the Bell brand. Whether it's "suffering" through an early ride into work to test out a new prototype, or a late night conference call with my far east coworkers, I'm dedicated to bringing the highest quality safety product to market.
I design helmets and sporting goods for Bell, Bell Helmets, and Giro...
Then I go and use, I mean "test", the product I designed! What more can I say...
As an intern at Easton-Bell Sports, I took on the task of designing a child's helmet as one of my senior student projects.
The brief was to replace an existing/aging helmet in the Bell Mass product line with a new/current design. I did this, and I was rewarded with not only a job, but also my first product in the marketplace. The helmet is still in the product line today. (April 2012)
I worked in the Pattern Shop detailing and painting models. This was a great first experience working with both the designers and the pattern shop.
As one of 3 employees, my jobs included, but were not limited to:
Throwing pots on both kick and electric wheels.
Mentoring and training new employees.
