About

I am a forward-looking, practicing designer with focuses on interaction and industrial design who thrives in a collaborative environment. My recently completed thesis, ARCAD, focused on the intersection of Interaction and Industrial Design through the creation of a parametric-style 3-D modeling environment in Augmented Reality.

Before attending the Master of Design Program at the University of Washington, I spent 4+ years working as a client-facing Industrial Designer at a 35-year-old product-development firm in Boulder Colorado. My undergraduate education included a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design and an Associate of Science in Automotive Technology. This varied background has cultivated design skills in a wide variety of mental models, physical and digital processes, prototyping approaches, and tools necessary to design, build and test innovative approaches and ideas.

I genuinely believe in the power of good design and its ability to improve the lives of its users and practitioners.
