Industrial Designer

About

IMG_8533.jpg

At age nine I snuck my dad's Braun shaver out of the house for show-and-tell and delivered my first design presentation, shocking my hippie school teacher, perplexing my classmates and delighting my dad, the modern design enthusiast. 

The rest is history – which includes a formal training in fine arts including woodworking, printmaking, glassblowing and ceramics 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 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 potential to apply design into our everyday lives through emerging technologies and new materials.  I live and work in San Francisco.
