I am an industrial designer based in San Francisco. I create new consumer products and solve design challenges through thoughtful, creative design. I have a passion for creating iconic elegant design solutions.

I excel at big picture problem solving and pay attention to the smallest design details. I love it all.

Throughout my career, I’ve worked for Apple and consulted for Nike, Sony, Revo as well as silicon valley startups.

Prism

Prism unites beautiful elements of jewelry, light and color with a discreet messaging interface. 

 

Prism's text messages are visible only to the wearer, arriving discreetly through Prism's faceted crystal gem top and embedded display. A subtle vibration alerts the wearer to events and texts. A brush of the finger left or right sends a simple reply, or dismisses the alert.

Prism's display provides a lustrous array of gem color options. Every aspect of Prism's look and interaction is personalized to your preferences.

Revo Goggles

Revo's first snow sport goggle. I created a unique design with maximum lens wrap and minimum frame appearance to set this high-end goggle design apart from the competition and to showcase the premium interchangable lens options.

Nike Minuteman Stopwatch

Nike's Minuteman stopwatch was designed with ergonomic consideration for active handheld use. I executed the design with a combination of materials; polycarbonate, polyurethane and stainless steel. The Nike Minuteman Stopwatch was an extremely successful design that lasted years in the Nike line of products.

Apple Mouse: My ergonomic redesign of the Apple Desktop Bus Mouse II  set a new standard for input devices and shipped with every Apple computer for over six years. This design proved hugely popular with consumers and was emulated across the computer industry.  

Apple Newton MessagePad: Apple's first truly mobile computing platform and breakthrough UX. Drawing inspiration from the reporter's notebook, I created a successful form factor with hinged cover and stylus pocket optimized for mobile pen computing.  

Apple Design Speakers: A premium personal desktop speaker designed with a curved rear housing and patented adjustable foot for optimum acoustics.

HERO BAGS

I founded Hero Bags, a line of USA made canvas bags and totes for the food, wine and gift marketplace. In addition to creating a brand and product line I also sourced American grown textiles and partnered with small American stitchers. I successfully sold Hero into Whole Foods Market, Eataly New York, URBN Outfitters and Sony Plaza in Japan. The entire Hero product line can be viewed here.
