I am Director of Industrial and Interaction Design at Whipsaw, and have been a professional Industrial Designer at since 2000. I thrive on the opportunity to influence projects that create new avenues for improving user experience, product immersion, human factors, and ultimately, livelihood. I crave challenges that come out of establishing cohesive design languages across a product line, and the integration of many smaller design parts into a larger design system... I'm a "system thinker". My specialties include medical products and product systems where the attention to precision–of–communication and foolproof–usability are a must.
I started as a fine artist before discovering industrial design in higher education... I feel this leads to having a knack for the empathy and tactility of design and infallible communication. I LOVE industrial design and how it blends my desire for craftsmanship and improving the human experience with meaningful design.
I make a practice of maximizing fun (and shenanigans) in life, though I am steadfast and serious about everything I put my mind to. When I am not designing for a living, you will find me in my workshop/kitchen, living for design.
