Summer of 2005 DESIGN INTERN, MERCURY MARINE
At Mercury Marine I worked on many projects with the design department. I conducted research for products and then used the research for my designs. On a few occasions I took a product from start to finish of the design process. A lot of my time was spent on conceptual sketches for outboard engines, seating, and accessories. Also I developed products using Alias. I learned about various manufacturing methods and how to implement them into my designs. I worked with other designers to brainstorm for ideas. I worked with the graphic design department in developing new decals for outboard engines. I worked with a rapid prototyping company in the development of models. I also had the pleasure of working with the Brunswick Design Group during my internship where I worked with designers to develop new products for the Brunswick Corporation.

Learning the design process and the various skills needed to be a successful designer were integrated into life long leasons in professionalism and integrity. I enrolled in various design and rendering courses and continue to further my education.
