Whether it was teaching swimming and tennis, helping restaurants with layout, or just "being the computer guy" for local orgs, all of my work — academic or otherwise — has cast me in the role of facilitator. Industrial Design has fortified these proclivities. Sponsored projects for major midwestern companies, a stellar internship in historic Providence, and side projects that span several schools and disciplines enrich those I've worked for and with. I consider my experiences a ticket to a lifelong education. So long as we all want to improve and connect, I intend to help people do just that.
