For the past four years I have primarily worked as an in-house designer for Bravado International, a music-merchandising company here in Manhattan, owned by Universal Music Group. I am an extremely well rounded designer with a bachelor’s in Industrial Design from Auburn University. My primary focus growing up was always Architecture, but after two years in college I decided it wasn’t my life’s passion and switched to industrial design. Passion above all.
