I am an industrial designer in San Francisco, CA, but my creativity comes from the basketball courts of Northeast Ohio where I discovered athletic sneakers and self expression on the court. I remember observing the best players and taking particular interest in how they presented themselves through clothing, posture, and speech. I trained myself to observe the details, understand what people really want, and why those things fit with their particularly crafted lifestyle.

This ability to connect with culture has stayed with me, and I have carefully crafted my industrial design career to design products that people wear and use as expression of self. My unique position as an industrial designer with passion to create fashion relevant pieces has allowed me to work with leading lifestyle brands like Nixon, Electric Visual, Nike, Incase, and The Art of Shaving. My work has been available to buy at big department stores like Nordstrom and Barneys New York to premier boutiques like Opening Ceremony and Colette.

I'm not where I am now without great mentors at Priority Designs in Columbus, OH, Dewalt in Towson, MD, fuseproject in New York, NY, CincoDesign in Portland, OR, Nike in Portland, OR, or here at Astro Studios in San Francisco, CA. At each stop I've learned anything from tangible technical skills to intangible skills that help me better connect to culture and create relevant designs. Thank you. Read Less
