I graduated with a BA in Media Arts & Graphic Design from Mt. Sierra College in Monrovia, CA in 2009. I spent about 8 years working for various T-shirt, sign making, and local fulfillment companies. Since then, I have spent the past 5 years working in the marketing department at Forbes Industries.
Forbes Industries is a global leader in the design, engineering and manufacturing of mobile products for the Hospitality and Food & Beverage Industry. We specialize in luggage carts, housekeeping carts and several mobile furniture products for the F&B industry such as bars, buffet systems, display tables, podiums, and much more. At Forbes, I have gained a ton of experience doing design and layout for digital and print media such as product flyers, spec sheets, catalogs, digital ads, website media, product photography, video editing, and 3-D modeling, and attending industry trade shows to stay up on trends. Harnessing the power of Google Sketch Up and Layout, 3-D furniture modeling has kind of turned into a specialty of mine. I got my feet wet taking our standard products and customizing them for some of the biggest hotels in the world. Some of my biggest accomplishments are working as the lead designer on projects for companies such as Disney, Four Seasons, Wynn and Aria in Las Vegas. I was recently promoted and have been working closely with our engineering and purchasing departments as the lead designer on our New Products Development team. Over the past year on the team, I spearheaded the physical design, material selections, and advertising for our newest product line "Mobile Nesting Tables" which is gaining huge success. One of my most favorite and notable product conceptions is our Mystique Mobile Bar unit that has interchangeable skins panels with built-in storage.
I love my current job but have always dreamed of working for the outdoors or action sports industry. I would love to see how I can apply my skills and experience to a way of life that has shaped my personality and lifestyle from the ground up.
I am a proud father of two kids and my hobbies include woodworking, snowboarding, golfing, fishing, hiking, camping and anything outdoors.
