Backyard Electronics Design: Before sending out for a final circuit to be engineered, I designed a functional prototype by networking and installing a series of pre-existing kits. (1) The assembled and networked kits. (2) Kits "neatly" placed in a project case. (3) Project case installed under right chair arm. (4) Functional prototype.

G2 Nursery Glider with Docking Ottoman

Given a blank canvas and the instruction to design what would be simply be the best performing and most feature-rich nursery glider to date, the G2 redefined the motion furniture category. Features include a first-ever docking ottoman, LED path lighting system, and a hands-free recline/ nursing position. I was responsible for conception, ideation, design, preliminary engineering, prototyping, sourcing, manufacturing, product management, and marketing. The CAD work and final engineering was done by Steve Wood at IT Technical Solutions.
