I grew up near the Olympic National Forest, which is why the great outdoors will always inspire me. At a young age, I watching and helping my father build residential homes. My favorite part was learning the many techniques and tools involved in the process. I was always amazed by the new construction gadgets that made my dad's work so much easier. Now, I continue to enjoy architecture, but put my energy into solving solutions with innovative products.
As an industrial designer, I focus on opportunities that have a positive impact on the user's health and well-being. In my design process, I immerse myself in the life of the person I’m designing for. Understanding their needs and their limitations in order to create solutions that allow them to experience life to the fullest.
Living life to the fullest is a right, not a luxury.
