I want to design products that encourage people to get outside and experience the world around them. As an intern for Bluekiwi, I worked on real world designs and had the opportunity to revise product samples in soft goods factories in Shenzhen, China. This real world experience has shaped my view of the steps beyond the design process, including communication with manufacturers. My strengths include concept generation, model making, prototyping form as well as developing detailed tech packs. I am particularly interested in working in the Outdoor Industry and had the privilege to attend OR's Winter 15 show.
