I am a graduate from the Fashion Institute of Technology's Toy Design program and for 2 years before that I worked as an illustraor/ charater designer. Last summer I was a design intern at Mattel. After graduation, I worked for Little Tikes as a preschool designer. I have extensive experience with Illustrator and Photoshop as well as traditional drawing methods. I also have experience making both hard and soft toymodels by hand and using the CAD program, SolidWorks.
