Hi.
I have 20 months of experience in product design. On co-op I worked on projects in a broad range of categories including medical, lifestyle goods, shoes, commercial machinery, retail environments, and packaging.
For my capstone, I am exploring the topic of E-bikes and how to make bike shares more accessible in cities with hills.

I chose design because it was a way of merging art, working with my hands, and storytelling. In my view design has two goals; the first is to make peoples lives easier, the second is to enhance the personal narrative we call life.
I’m a cyclist, a car loving gearhead, a huge fan of local beers, and reader of books that challenge the way I think (Gladwell, Kerouac, Nietzsche, etc).

Thanks for reading.
