Developmental Sketches - These are a variety of sketches that i have done for multiple projects. They demonstrate my ability to quickly communicate ideas and sense of form to others.
Solar Decathlon - This is a project that I did in my final year of school. I worked with Interior Designers and fellow Industrial Designers to create furniture for a solar powered house designed by architects from Carnegie Mellon University and engineered at the University of Pittsburgh.
Thesis Project - This is my thesis project. I wanted my project to make some kind of difference in society. I designed a building toy for girls to fill a void in the current market where research showed there would by potential for good sales. Toys like this are very educational for young children and help develop both mental and motor skills.
Renderings - These renderings are examples of refinement in my design that better portray both color and form.
Recreation Design - This is a simple project done for my recreation design class. The tent is designed to sleep eight in two seperate rooms. It only has five poles for its assembly. It is rendered in photoshop.
