Constantly enamored by the small shiny objects that usually remain unnoticed in life, I´m a creative thinker, a tinkerer, and a genuinely nice guy. I like to make things, solve problems creatively, and lend a helping hand. I believe design should be both socially and environmentally responsible. I believe it should be honest in its purpose, source, and concept, and that it is the little details that can make something standout from the pack.
I was born just outside of Philadelphia. From an early age I can remember wondering how something was made and how I could make it better. I spent most of my free time in the early years doing internships in everything and anything that remotely interested me. This included everything from being a professional ceramicist´s assistant to a tile and marble installer, to various positions in architecture firms, industrial design firms, and EGD firms.
I believe that being a designer is more of a way of thinking and seeing the world than a set of tools that only work in one field. My professional career has taken me to very different places in the spectrum of design. I have been lucky enough to work as an environmental graphic designer at both ex;it and Cloud Gehshan Associates. I most recently worked at MIO, a driving force in the eco-centric industrial design field, as a Senior Designer. Please take a look at my resumé.
My real passion lies in applying design thinking to aid in social change. I currently spend my days working on projects for the nonprofit I cofounded, Fresh Artists.
