I am a US Army Veteran who received his B.S. in Industrial Design from San Jose State University and worked at a industrial design + engineering + research design consultancy located in San Francisco for 5 years. Being an industrial designer in a fast paced design and engineering firm has taught me vital design skills and formed me into a more 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.
From Physical to Digital
In pursuit of expanding my design tool belt, I'm currently transitioning from industrial design [3D] to user experience design [2D]. Gaining knowledge and skills in the digital space has becoming a necessity as advances in VR, AR and MR (Mixed Reality) are shaping how people interact with the world around them. My physical to digital design journey begins with me as a user experience designer on a talented multi-disciplinary team developing Cisco Spark; A powerful enterprise collaboration tool that combines video meetings, messaging, calling, file-sharing, and white boarding that connects seamlessly with Cisco's secure network and devices. Wish me luck!
