An Industrial Design graduate of the University of Kansas, School of Architecture, Design and Planning with a passion for the sports industry. My skills and experience in design translate to any field, most recently consumer electronics. I am highly motivated and driven to succeed at any challenge put in front of me. Whether it be unique design challenges that require me to think from a new perspective or that final mile before the finish line when it’s just me, the pavement and my running shoes. I enjoy the challenge and pushing myself to new limits.
