20 years of experience in product design. I started in the car industry as I love cars and transport design. As a surfer, I moved to the surf industry in 2001 to design bags, accessories, footwear and eyewear for 6 years at Ripcurl, 2 years at O'Neill (management of a design team) and 5 years at Oxbow. From the first sketch including graphic design, to the development in Asia and the photo shooting. I decided to work as a free lance designer and photographer in 2013 to get different challenges and experiences.
