Independent Design Consultant
Little Blue Boat
Aug 2018 - Present (3 years 10 months)
As an independent design consultant I have had the opportunity to participate on teams working on automotive interior and exterior, aerospace, and consumer electronic programs. Ideation sketching, rendering and refinement of design is my wheelhouse, but in my experience as a consultant I have also been able to contribute to project management, 3-d development and support, and always looking to hone my skills regardless of what the task is. Being able to fit into teams working remotely and group communication are strengths I've found beneficial. Whether its homologating an interior or conceptualizing seating layout for aerospace applications I love new challenges, and always looking to learn something as I go.
