Sachin Mistry's passion for design dates back to his childhood where he found himself immersed with art classes and sketchbooks. After graduating from The Cleveland Institute of Art, he started his journey with industrial design working in the Northeast with Fitch for SABIC Innovative Plastics. While there, he developed an appreciation for the materials and processes involved in making quality products. Sachin then decided to make the move over to the West coast, where he found himself with the newly formed design consultancy, Soulcake. Working with Soulcake, he helped design some very memorable products like the Cobra ZL and the award winning AMP driver for 2012. Sachin takes great pride in the level of service that he offers to others. As his journey continues, he looks forward to sharing his skills and passion with others. How can I help you?
