Bio

I graduated from RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) in June of 2020 with a BFA degree in Industrial Design. I currently live in Providence, RI with my girlfriend and two mischievous cats. I'm passionate about great design, art-jewelry, music production and bonsai. 

 

Work History

In the past, I've worked with Aneira Pharma, CVS Health, Ross-Simons Jewelers, DUAL Architecture, Greenwich Interiors, and DownCity Design. This spans jobs in small studios, contract positions, and internships. 

Design Philosophy

I don't believe in specialization (we rarely face the same problem twice). The more diverse a designer's skillset, the more prepared they are to tackle new challenges and learn how to confront them. Constant learning, empathy, and exposure to new ideas are what make the most successful designers tick.
