Hey! How’s it goin’?

I have a year and a half of professional design experience under my belt working with both large corporations, and small consultancies around the world. I discovered my passion for outdoor equipment while designing technical backpacks & camera gear for Thule. However my design knowledge covers everything from home decor and children’s toys, to research and systems design for cultures overseas.

My capstone is modular lacrosse pads that personalize to the user’s play-style.

My architect/carpentry entrepreneur father provided much creative influence in my youth with a twist of logic and practical thinking from my accountant mother. This up-bringing has fostered my well-rounded analytical yet creative problem solving mindset. I particularly enjoy technical problem solving for outdoor/sporting goods.
