The Happy Claymore Bag.
Working directly with seasoned explosives operators, I designed a pouch for M18A1 claymore mines for dramatically improved field use for U.S. Armed Forces. Additionally, the pouch is sold to civilians for general purpose use. The jagged stitched-on smile (inspired by the Batman villain Scarecrow) is the icing on the cake.

PMAG D-60 Drum Pouch.
Equal parts part oragami and cut/sew. Design of an innovative pouch specifically for Magpul's newly released PMAG D-60 Drum Magazine. The D-60 magazine had to fit snugly, yet be easily and quickly removed (with or without gloves), in the field under highly stressful situations. It also had to meet Berry Compliance as it may be contracted for use by U.S. Armed Forces. There were dozens and dozens of prototypes to ensure a perfectly functional end product.

While juggling my daily duties as Industrial Designer, I was also Social Media Manager of the Magpul Instagram account; responsible for creating original photo concepts, some of the photography, product releases, and more. I systematically brought the Magpul Instagram account from a slowly shrinking 100,000 followers up to 350,000+ followers in less than 11 months, without the use of any paid account promotion or boosting. Frequent assistance and collaboration with other Magpul social media channels (Facebook, Youtube, etc).
