Industrial design is problem solving! I believe that good industrial design—and any design for that matter—is rooted in empathy and observation. To effectively solve problems put forward, designer must put themselves in the user's shoes, research the cause and challenges, and observe how we've tried to solve similar problems. The designer then creates concept after concept utilizing creativity, artistic skill, and armchair engineering to invent a solution that can be mass produced.
In college I fell in love with this problem solving methodology and put my insatiable curiosity to work. I've worked on projects for enormous brands and individual inventors alike. I'm listed as an inventor on over eight utility patents.
