I have developed a strong understanding in the design process and project management skills through internships and a strong project based program at CU Boulder. When I wasn't studying at CU Boulder I spend time skiing, mountain biking, backpacking and surfing. My interest in these sports has led to exciting career in the action sports and outdoor industry. Working on products that I can personally understand and test has given me the insight needed to develop industry leading products. Focusing on bio-medical engineering at CU furthered my understanding of the physics, lab procedures, and attention for detail needed when working on products that consumers trust to protect their body in the inevitable accidents seen on the slopes, trails, and tracks every day.
