I believe that once your eyes are open to the world of product design, you see everyday things differently. Knowing all of the thought and insight that went into creating each of those things, you learn to ask different questions. Why is that detail the way it is? It is my goal to understand these choices, and drive forward the insights that make the products we interact with on a daily basis meaningful.
My experience includes 13 years at design & branding consultancies, where I started as a junior designer and worked my way up to the role of Design Director. My most recent job has been completely different, but very meaningful to me. My focus has been on designing baby carriers, a product I believe deeply in. I've been able to apply my sewing skills (once a hobby) to the world of soft goods design. I have also gained new insights being on "the other side" and acting as the client vs. the consultant.
