Industrial Design Director
I synthesize data and concepts and transform them into concrete design targets to advance brands and deliver successful products. Some key elements of my process are the early creation of working prototypes, development of systems to define program parameters, collaborating across job descriptions, and feeding intuition through disciplined research. My hands-on engagement, attention to details, and immersion in the multidisciplinary aspects of every project result in successful product introductions and bottom-line benefits. My work is characterized by strong material purity, meaningful and appropriate solutions, and production-ready design integrity.
