My professional background has been at Fisher-Price, the worlds largest toy company, as a designer in the Baby Gear Division. However, my skill set and interests have capabilities far beyond the toy and product design environment. The education I received at the Cleveland Institute of Art allowed me the great opportunity to explore many areas of design; such as automotive, architectural, interior, graphic, product, toy, electronics, furniture, etc.
