I started at Viatek contributing to the graphics team’s responsibilities including packaging design, Instructions, and product photography.
Over the course of two years, my role evolved more into the engineering & new product development teams. I began by modifying existing CAD but eventually started redesigning products and creating new designs. After three years, a number of my designs have already been produced, marketed and sold.

With over a decade of design experience, I can bring a wealth of knowledge and ideas to any design team or startup project. I am a fast learner and can hit the ground running in virtually any design environment. Currently I am working with local product development companies and startups. Need some design advice, sketching or CAD work for your project or idea? Let me know how I can be of help. I'm only an email or phone call away.
POP/OR product Designer
Jan 2011 - Oct 2015 (4 years 9 months)
At SMP I developed Point Of Purchase displays along client briefs. I came up with numerous creative POP solutions per week many seeing wide production. I also designed graphics for prototypes, developed instruction sheets and modelled various products and parts for projects as needed. One highlight was a new mechanism for attaching small baskets to the sides of displays with 1” tube legs without the need for hardware or tools.
I was also part of a small team which developed a line of capital equipment for heavy ortho. cases and a number of other products focused around equipment an processes used during surgical procedures. My biggest contribution was designing the a hydraulic IV stand. My favorite details include a five pedal design so the lift could be activated no matter which way the stand was oriented, an ergonomic handle and trim pieces.
