I am an Industrial Designer for Innovative Office Products of Easton, PA. We design and manufacture monitor mounting solutions for home, office, production, command & control and service settings. The company is best known for its award winning lineup of LCD monitor arms. I earned my Masters Degree in Industrial Design from North Carolina State University's College of Design, and I specialize in analog and digital sketch ideation, 3D modeling, prototyping, trend research, interdisciplinary team work, clear communication, and learning new skills. My design interests include, but are not limited to, furniture, fixtures, footwear, and transportation. In my personal time I design, fabricate and sell custom furniture using steel and locally salvaged hardwood.
