I am a long time "Hacker", with a chronic case of SIS (Serial Inventor Syndrome). This experience as a designer and entrepreneur has led me to developing a variety of products for multiple markets, including automotive accessories, toys, furniture and exhibits. As a Industrial Design graduate from Art Center College of Design, I started out my career designing toys for Tonka toys along with projects for Playmates, Hasbro and Little Tikes. I later developed my own (IDEA) award winning line of paper folding cars called Autogami. I also spent time designing aircraft interiors, first with Boeing in Seattle, then with Embraer in Brazil. Most recently, I've focused on furniture projects aimed at niche markets creating new kinds of furniture that incorporate my fascination with how things fold and exploring new materials and technologies.
