Design is what I live & breathe, accomplished through many different avenues throughout my life. I design, I build, I 3D model, and I make products through thoughtful innovative design and I love doing it.
With 7 years of experience in the Product design field, I have created many products and worked across a broad scope of brands. I have a strong passion for design with in-depth experience in Cut and Sew, sketching, hand rendering, model making, 3D modeling (Rhino), human centered design research, and trend research. I understand the dynamics of the professional workspace and I have a working knowledge of manufacturing processes, along with experience in Asia travel, and trade show research. I am skilled in concept design, project management, and final design implementations. While my on the job experience has afforded me a well-rounded skill set, I thrive in problem solving whether it be functionality, costing, or test certifications. I excel at prioritizing workloads and coordinating multiple ongoing projects.
