Associate Designer - Men's Footwear
Graduate of the Industrial Design program @ Wentworth Institute of Technology in 2012. I've been very lucky to have had some amazing designers for mentors. My goal is to follow my mentors footsteps, to continue to learn and to one day become experienced enough to one day pass what I've learned on to the next generation of great designers and give back to the design community.
