At age nine I snuck my dad's Braun shaver out of the house for show-and-tell and delivered my first industrial design presentation, shocking my hippie school teacher, perplexing my Montessori classmates and delighting my dad, the modern design enthusiast.
The rest is history – which includes a formal training in fine arts and a BS degree in industrial design from University of The Arts in Philadelphia. Then, with a fistful of Pantone markers, grit and a dream I moved to California and joined the Apple industrial design group. I was honored to become the first female designer on the team and thrilled to work on a phenomenal portfolio of products. I then went on to design products for some of the most respected brands in the world including Sony, Nike and Revo.
I've started several businesses, launched my own line of products and I've won more than a few design awards. What drives me today is the design of environmentally responsible products and the potential to apply design into our everyday lives through emerging technologies.
