I am a US Army Veteran who received a B.S. in Industrial Design from San Jose State University and worked at an industrial design + engineering + research design consultancy located in San Francisco for 5 years. Being in a fast paced design and engineering firm taught me vital design skills and formed me into a well rounded versatile designer. I participated in a wide range of projects varying from wearable tech, consumer products, medical carts, hand-held medical devices, computer vision hardware, research based robotics and concept development for future technology. I've enjoyed the diversity of each project and have a user centered approach to solving each distinct design challenge.
A few companies I've had the pleasure to do work for : Google, Apple, Panasonic, Toyota, Toshiba, Ricoh, zSpace and Dexcom.
Merging Physical and Digital
In the pursuit of expanding my design tool belt, I transitioned from industrial design [3D] to user experience design [2D]. My physical to digital design journey began with me as a user experience designer on a talented multi-disciplinary team developing Webex Teams; An enterprise collaboration tool that combines video meetings, messaging, calling, file-sharing, and white boarding that connects seamlessly with Cisco's secure network and devices. During my time at Cisco my background in physical design was noticed and utilized and I began a different path as an interaction designer, combining both physical and digital designs in the VR, AR and MR (Mixed Reality) space.
Today I’m working as an Industrial and Interaction Designer at Toyota Research Institute working on all things design for vehicles as well as robotics.
