I'm a Transportation/Industrial designer with proven excellence in vehicle and mobile user interface hardware development and integration/management of UX. I have experience with developing design for transportation, human-machine interface, and product design. I'm proficient in most CAD packages, and can sketch like a mad man. My ability to see possibilities is perhaps my greatest design asset. My education background compromises a Bachelors in economics, MFA in industrial design, and many-years hands-on experience working in corporate design environments. Above all I value a collaborative creative environment working with intelligent and passionate people from all backgrounds and disciplines.
