Brunton Brewfire - Works just like a standard coffee maker, features a stainless steel 8 cup carafe, and is fueled by a 1lb propane bottle.
09 Crucial tool - I wanted to create a clip knife that transformed into a minimal multi-tool. With a full sized proportional blade, plier with cutters, carabiner/bottle opener, and two standard drivers.
Fixed blade concept - This is one knife of a series I did for a minimalist all purpose small knife. The handles are machined aluminum with anodized finish.
08 Gerber Balefire/Brunton Polaris - This was the first multi branded Gerber Brunton product. Direct responsibilities included all ideation, overall form development, ergonomics, color and texture assessment. Set up and lead several successful end-user focus groups and research exercises.
08 Gerber Sliding Saw - Extensive 3D ergonomic form studies lead to this solution. A glass filled nylon handle with a heavy texture and an innovative sliding mechanism reveals the 6.5" stainless steel precision ground blade. Weighs only 3.5 oz. and can be lashed to a tree limb for added reach.
09 Metolius Hunting Knife - I developed a tactical form language for a traditional market, as well as chose construction details including a glass filled nylon handle with rubber grip overmold and river rock texture.
09 Metolius Hunting Knife set - The set includes four types of knives for different applications and uses. I also was responsible for designing the carrying and sheath systems for each piece.
09 Gerber Splice/Vice keychain tool - Explored new functionality, user interface, and form language to greatly improve an existing best selling platform.
09 Gerber Option Series - Interchangeable battery technology allows the user to choose the power source from AAA, AA, or CR123. Features an anodized aluminum body and output of 55 max lumens.
Polaris lantern reviews - Product reviews by Outside magazine, and Camping life.
Emergency Rescue Cutter - I designed a very simple yet intuitive interface that allows the user to grab and cut without having to reposition the tool. It outperformed our competition and led to extensive government and private contracts.
Brunton Campstar - Handheld "rugged outdoor" LED flashlight. Features advanced Omnivore Battery Technology, sleek ergonomic form, and an integrated pivoting aluminum carabiner.
Gerber Epic - Series of compact utilitarian camping knives.
Gerber Strata Tool - New high end Multi-Tool platform.

  • Thanks guys, the finished product once released will actually have composite Micarta handles which won't be white. I created these renderings more to satisfy my personal preference.
