Creative and Hardworking Design Professional that has a great passion for designing new and innovative solutions for today's design problems. I have a great passion for sports and footwear and fashion accessories. Interested in footwear design, product development, bicycle design, watches and accessories design, anything related to action sports and fashion industry.

I am currently a soft-goods designer at Fabrique LTD in Branford, CT designing backpacks, laptop cases, ipad cases, and other luggage accessories. I have experience with all sorts of technical cases and bags from initial concepts to fully finished products that are put through production and onto the market place in consumer and commercial sale and use. Those experiences include seeing a project from the hand sketches into concept ideation with computer renderings and presentation, trend and market research for inspiration then moving into final concept and putting that into technical specification to send out to factories (communicating with Asia team) and then review of products and round of revisions to final production of product.

I have also worked as a designer at Innovative Display and Design a 3D exhibit design company specializing in designing and building displays for tradeshows, marketing environments and events.

I am also a freelance designer and graphic artist ranging from projects to logo creation and ideation to graphics for t- shirts and apparel, website graphics, invitations, posters, business cards and all sorts of print media design.

I've worked as a Freelance designer for Turf Dawg USA, where I also completed two internships while in school.
