Professional Achievements

Over my eleven years of experience, I have had the privilege of working with companies such as Pablo Design, Dunlop, Kensington and Model-No. Throughout all of my work, I have been consistent in utilizing a user-centered approach while effectively balancing both the creative side of a design and the more technical aspect of a product’s manufacturability. As an Industrial Designer, I believe great design cannot be achieved alone and it is my goal to strive as a key member of a team, developing simple, functional and aesthetically pleasing products.
