I am a recent graduate from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a BFA in Industrial Design. Attending such a large university has given me a very broad skill set and I am excited to grow even more in the professional world. I use this background to identify needs by performing a very thorough front end user research phase. I then translate these needs into original and intuitive products through a rigorous concept development process. I have a specific interest in the field of sporting goods products but I am always open to new and interesting opportunities. If you have any questions or would like to collaborate please don't hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Specialties: I pride myself in idea generation, lateral thinking and cross function collaboration. The University of Illinois has prepared me with a very deep understanding of skills necessary for effective research and empathic modeling. I have a great deal of experience working with multidisciplinary teams. I have had valuable experience in leadership roles but definitely thrive in a strong team environment.
