I have a broad background in different industry fields. I'm able to adapt quickly and learn quickly. I'm very comfortable in working independently as well in a group setting.
Early on I had experiences helping design barbecue tools and furniture. I had the privilege to be one of the five designers to bring Minneapolis's first light rail train to reality. I also had to opportunity to problem solve and streamline workflow systems at a small distributor improving and boosting productivity, and reducing inventory loss. Allowing the company to take on more customers and increasing profitability.
Currently I project manage Ducati North America's dealership network by doing first round of retail design and space planning and implementing the final design per the company's corporate identity guidelines.
I've been fortunate to be able to be involved in different industries and types of projects allowing me to develop a well rounded background. It has given me the ability to concentrate on different tool sets that can be combined when needed to seek out solutions.
