I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Rochester Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Industrial Design and currently working at Penn State Industries as a Junior Industrial Designer. I am interested in expanding my skills as an industrial designer and am hoping to find a challenging position where I can utilize my creativity.
I am a motivated designer who enjoys all aspects of the design process and am eager to assist team members to ensure their success. To meet expectations of both the user and the client, I like to involve product users in early research. I think very carefully about how material and process choices affect manufacturability, product cost, and the environment. My current and previous full- time/freelance jobs included jewelry, consumer products, bicycle, and hi-fi audio designs, prototype/ furniture fabrications, short-run production on a machinist lathe, and logo development. In addition to conventional design skills, I put in the extra effort to learn Rhinoceros, SolidWorks, Keyshot, Sketchbook Pro, 3D printing, CNC machining with Autodesk Fusion 360, Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, sewing, technical packs, and TIG/MIG welding.
