I work with innovative organizations and entrepreneurs to design and develop compelling products. My passion for developing inspired products starts with focused research and continues through concept generation, design refinement and user validation. Working with a variety of innovative firms in the Greater Boston area, I find that my skills are most often used to translate the needs of the user and the vision of the client into a meaningful package that is both intentional and desirable.
