An experienced Industrial Designer of consumer products, sporting goods, footwear and green technologies. Successfully creating products that need to hold a presence of their own, convey brand language, address human factors, while performing technically within a wide range of environments and contexts. This experience has provided me an extensive tool kit for the design process and a true passion for the creation of great things.
