    senior industrial designer fiskars brands, inc.

    Madison, WI

i don’t consider myself a design researcher, graphic designer, model maker, prototype builder, ergonomist, or an engineer, though i do take on all these roles, and more, to solve problems...i am an industrial designer who strives for solutions that are based on content, because content is king!
