I am a designer, inventor, and builder.

My Story

I got my start in innovation and entrepreneurship early by competing in and winning at the Canada Wide Science Fair – with projects ranging from fractal image compression to finding landmines with ground penetrating radar. 

As an undergrad at Stanford, I designed my own interdisciplinary Neuroengineering major and later got my masters in Mechanical Engineering. 

I have worked at IDEO Palo Alto for 7 years managing projects and designing electromechanical systems for kids toys, bio-medical devices, consumer electronics, and low-cost electricity generation. 

In my spare time, I am obsessed with flying machines and electric vehicle design – I was part of the team that launched Faraday Bikes as a spinoff from IDEO and won the Oregon Manifest’s People’s Choice award in Portland.

From electric skateboards to scooters to trikes to bicycles to whatever I dream up next, I am busy designing the next generation of technology for our dynamic, beautiful world.
