For the past 12+ years I have been working at Chef'n designing fun, inventive kitchen gadgets. I have worked on everything from pepper grinders to rolling garlic choppers. I get to work on unique products everyday that make cooking a pleasure instead of a pain. I enjoy all aspects of the design process from research and ideation, all the way to CAD, and prototyping. The best part of the process is putting a design in someone else's hands and seeing how they use it. I am lucky to have taken products from concept to manufacturing and to even have presented them at tradeshows. Even better they make great presents.
