I am passionate about design. I enjoy constantly searching for the next design challenge, and having the opportunity to work with a great team to create new and innovative design solutions that will change the world. My continuing objective is to use the skills and experience I've acquired as an industrial designer to incorporate good design and engineering function into product development. I also intend to utilize new technologies wherever possible to achieve sustainable design.
