    Product Designer

    San Francisco, CA

I’m a creative Industrial Designer with over 7 years of experience. I believe great design cannot be achieved alone and that working as a team is essential to develop the best possible products. Since 2010 I have worked with brands designing furniture, consumer electronics, lights, and lifestyle products. As a contractor I have worked with Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, Norwell and Kichler, Kensington, Pablo, Dunlop and many others.
