As the head of packaging development and design, I get to use all my skills both on and off the computer to turn out the latest and greatest packaging dielines and designs. I have the privilege of using my hands to take what I create in the digital realm and bringing them into physical form. I work with E-Flute corrugate, vacu-formers, creation of positive and negative mold forms, and my custom X-acto knife on a daily basis. I take comfort every night in the fact that I am doing what I was put on this earth to do. I am just fortunate that I work in an industry that allows me to combine my two biggest loves: tools and design. I get to design packaging for the things I love and use on a daily basis.
