Industrial designer, co-founder of DSGN+skills, design enthusiast.
In May 2019 I left Apple and am now helping smart design teams with rendering, animation, VR, and design workflows.
Currently I’m working with companies in autonomous robotics, 3D printed eyewear, competitive cycling products, and more. Once projects are made public I’ll be launching new content on my site.
I'm based in the SF South Bay Area, and enjoy all things tech & design. It's always fun to explore new creative techniques and keep old skills sharp, so I try to constantly work on 2D & 3D projects.

From 2008-2013 I designed premium and luxury cooking appliances for BSH Home Appliances as part of the North American design team. My focus was on traditional industrial design, and also contributing to long-term brand, product, and sales strategy. I was chosen for a six month international exchange program in Munich, Germany in 2012, and spent time rotating with different design teams there. BSH was an incredible experience for a young designer, and I was intimately involved in many products that were released under the Bosch and Thermador brands.
After 5 years of working as an industrial designer, I joined Luxion in 2013 to explore more possibilities in the 3D rendering world. I started the KeyShot on-site training program and established East Coast representation by starting and growing our New York office. I got to spend time with over 500 designers and 100+ design teams globally, and contributed to online learning content responsible for over 300K YouTube views. I worked with customers and internal development teams on workflow recommendations and software improvements for future versions of KeyShot. As manager of KeyShot's training program, I get to educate and work with a wide array of clients including Dell, Gulfstream, IDEO, Microsoft, NASA, Nike, Samsung, and the US Mint.
In 2017 I got the opportunity to join Apple, and spent the next 18 months working with a broad group of talented individuals & teams on upcoming technologies.
As of April 2019 I'm working for myself, specializing in 3D rendering and workflows.
I graduated with a focus on visual arts from the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts in Natchitoches, Louisiana in 2003. LSMSA is a residential, coed magnet school offering college level courses to high school students. This school enabled me to excel to a high pressure environment, and I have been invited back to speak with current students about my college and professional experiences.
In 2007 I was the Distinguished Graduate for Industrial Design at the School of Architecture and Design at the University of Louisiana Lafayette, receiving my Bachelors degree in Industrial Design. My first internship was with BSH Home Appliances and would turn into my first full-time design position.
