ABOUT

Originally from Houston, Texas now living in New York, NY.

I've worked as a Designer for Make My Day Products, Point Innovation, Quirky Inc, Prime Studios, and more. I'm interested in all things related to exploring creativity and problem solving. When not designing I'm practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, bicycling the bridges of New York, or listening to podcasts. My latest obsession is attempting to live a more minimal life-style. My life long obsession has been classic Mercedes-Benz and music.
