    Design Manager at Brunswick Boat Group

    Daytona Beach, FL

My professional experience so far has taken me in some unexpected and delightful directions. I have had the privilege of growing through a company while being able to reflect on experiences I have had at a consultancy to build a team of designers that have fun, truly love what they do, and create award winning boats at the same time. My skills are developing every day, I am constantly learning from those around me while challenging them to be best they can be.
