I have worked on a variety of projects from research to ideation and refinement with many different clients, including Volcom, Converse, Adidas, K-Swiss, Electric, and Burton R.E.D. Although I have mainly worked in soft goods (bags, footwear, gloves, and accessories), I am also comfortable working with hard goods and 3D modeling. I love to dive into a problem head first and come up with lots of new possibilities. My work is very important to me, and I truly enjoy working with others.
