I am currently working as a watch designer for Fossil in Dallas, Texas. Many of the new watches that I have developed will be hitting stores toward the end of this year. I have also continued to collaborate on the development of multiple ride-on toys at Radio Flyer including the Cyclone, currently on the market. I have had the opportunity to bring distinctive products to market across multiple industries; I look forward to continuing this trend. I am very interested in collaborating with other designers and learning new unique creative approaches. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments!
