Designer (Product Design)

Member since January 31, 2009

I have 2 degrees--BA in Biological Anthropology, BFA in Industrial Design.

Having to choose just one area of interest is tough--I care about sustainability, ergonomics, function AND form equally. I'm passionate about home product design, lighting design, musical instrument design (I'm a semi-pro musician as well) and have been inventing better ways to make a better product since I was a child. Very little gets me revved up more than having a problem to solve, a puzzle to mend, a space to fill smartly & creatively. Bring it on!
