    Sr. Industrial Designer

    San Jose, CA

Currently working as a Sr. Helmet designer for the biggest and best helmet company in the world. Projects listed as "surfacemonkey" were collabs with engineers, inventors, and other designers. The title gives credit where it's due, and is employed when the original idea isn't mine, but the realization of the idea is. It usually involves taking a rough sketch or product brief, and making it into a physical model very quickly.
