Los Angeles, CA
Feb 2010 - Present (12 years 4 months)
I began with Skyrocket as a remote contract designer and moved to LA and came aboard as a full time employee in 2013. Responsibilities include taking ideas from conception to the shelf. I work closely with sales and marketing to insure products are on trend and meet market demands. I have a close relationship with our Asia team and travel to Hong Kong and mainland China to work with our factory and model shop partners to maintain tight development schedules.
I am well versed in 2D concepting and iteration with traditional sketching, Photoshop and Illustrator. I am also proficient with 3D modeling and rendering. I focus mainly on surface modeling in Rhino and organic modeling in Zbrush and Freeform. I work closely with our in house rapid prototyping team to make proof of concept and working models for sales demos.
