A Bit About Me

    I have always been inspired by design as a kid. Taking apart electronics and toys to see how things work. After the military, I really wanted to focus my attention on the field of design.

    Being an avid gamer, I wanted to to be apart of a game design team. As school progressed and opened my eyes to the rest of what design could be, I fell in love with idea that "everything can be made better" in one way or another.

    Overall, I found myself in my creative place. Where design can meet manufacturing with all people in mind. I find joy every day that I sit down and design.

  • Think creatively

  • Sketching and jotting
