The idea is where it all starts. The process is how that idea is realized. From sketching to mockups to prototypes to user testing to CAD to instruction sheets, I am an exceptionally versatile designer who is comfortable and capable in every stage of bringing a product from grand concept to product in hand. The big idea is important, but so is the little stuff. Fit & finish, durability, color, weight, feel, usability. No detail is too small because details are the difference between a forgettable throwaway and something that provides years of joyful use. Never comfortable doing one thing, I find the entire design process exhilarating and often find myself switching gears quickly to get the most important things done on time.

    Sketching and modeling display concepts along client briefs, creating graphics for display prototypes and ensuring prototypes function correctly, as well as the occasional instruction sheet and other design related functions. Developed numerous POP displays, fixtures and innovative mechanisms that went on to sell thousands of units to nationally and globally recognized companies.

    SCAD was fantastic. I got to do everything I had been wanting to do ever since I was a little kid. Taking things apart, putting them back together, learning about all kinds of new things, cutting up paper, drawing, coming up with great ideas, painting things, making things, learning cool computer programs, working with cool machines and the whole bit. I loved every minute of it.
