Sr. Industrial Designer
Gerber Legendary Blades (Fiskars Outdoors)
May 2006 - Nov 2011 (5 years 6 months)
Most recently worked directly with Bear Grylls, and lead the design direction for his signature line of survival gear. As a team leader I helped to develop and direct an entirely new direction and design process which has transcended into the global corporation. As a Sr. level designer I have successfully lead the design direction of several market leading products for the Gerber and Brunton brands. Currently my responsibilities include uncovering new needs and creating meaningful relevant solutions for the end user. This is achieved through thought out choices of form, aesthetics, user interfaces, and ergonomics. As well as determining finishes, materials, graphics, and color. These solutions are conveyed directly to marketing, engineering, implementation and sales, through several relevant mediums.
