About

I'm a Pacific Northwest freelance Industrial Designer with a passion for designing innovative and consumer conscious products. Please visit my freelance company website at www.creatid.com My main career focus has been designing manufacturable products from conception through production, typically working with smaller companies where many hats are needed in day to day work. Whereas Industrial Design is my focus, I believe that includes all aspects of the product design life cycle. Project management, sketching, end user research, hands on prototyping and feedback, CAD, presentation, engineering, packaging, design for manufacture, and end user product testing are just a few of these. In order to make a great long term product, all phases must be considered. Living in the Portland area has given me the opportunity to work with many different industries on a plethora of projects . The medical industry on carts and handheld devices, point of purchase display, audio, and the cutlery industry to name a few. In my spare time, being outside rain or shine is on my mind. On the bike, on the trails, running, biking, hiking, backpacking and anything that gets the heart rate up is my other passion. Examples of my work can be seen at http://www.creatid.com
