Industrial Designer
While currently working with a number of clients, I primarily worked with Beats By Dre through the brand’s unique partnership with Ammunition. Prior to the Apple acquisition, I was heavily engaged with Beats’ Product Development team and Robert Brunner, creating designs for new products and new categories. In this role, I balanced multiple projects while traveling frequently to Los Angeles and China to facilitate concept presentations, design development, and manufacturing.

In my years with Beats, I experienced their rapid growth - from past with Monster, HTC, and now Apple - and had the privilege of working with Beats executives GM/EVP Susan Paley, President/COO Luke Wood, and Founder’s Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre. It has truly been an incredible experience to have been involved with a such a transformative and dynamic company.
