Summary

I am a recent graduate from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco with a BFA in Industrial Design. I worked at Quirky in SF for six months as a Prototyping intern which rolled into being a Mechanical Design Engineer at Flextronics for an additional six months at the same facility. That was during my junior year in school and left because I felt like I needed to refocus on design and completing my education. After school I had the opportunity to work for my school as a Shop Technician and Instructor of a model making workshop. I get to apply myself daily to the design process but also have the ability to experiment with my own design, which in my spare time revolves mostly around the cycling industry. Stand out products in my life have reshaped the experience of my passions that run along side my design which are mountain biking, surfing and skiing. My absolute goal in design and what drives my passion is to bring those defining and redefining products into peoples lives!
