Working as an independent designer has allowed me to practice a wide range of design related skills. I've been involved in early stage conceptual projects and late stage projects ready for tooling. I've developed a range of skills as needed to interact with various cultures at multiple companies. I've had the opportunity to take part in focus groups, pitch concepts, review models, and make final changes for production readiness. Working with these companies has also taught me how to efficiently communicate with engineers, marketing departments, factories, and owners.

Digital tools are a phenomenal way to quickly and accurately communicate design ideas. Since college, I've refused to be hindered in my design process by a lack of skills. I am constantly advancing my skill set while working as an independent designer. I've been hired by a number of companies needing complex 3D modeling which in-house designers were unable to accomplish. I have become an expert in parametric 3D modeling programs, specifically Fusion 360 and Solidworks.  I am also an expert in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. I can create photorealistic renderings for advertising as well as technical drawings for tooling or patents. I can also program CAM for both subtractive milling and additive manufacturing, such as 3D printing.

I've always felt right at home in the shop, rapid prototyping, mocking things up, and creating final models. I own two large scale 3D printers, a 3.5-axis CNC mill, a drag-knife cutter, and a woodshop. I have built a wide range of prototypes and models including RTV molded soft rubber tires,  a full scale model of a walker, and an augmented reality headset. My skills directly translate to creating concepts that are readily manufacturable and push the boundaries of existing manufacturing methods. In my spare time, I enjoy woodworking and cabinet making as a hobby.
