I'm an expert in bringing designs from concept to market.

My Story

I am committed to watertight execution, to shepherding a creative vision to its most brilliant realization. To do this, I balance technological skill with real-world experience of industrial design, fabrication, and integrated branding. I have applied my expertise to the launches of several high-profile products and initiatives, including Jawbone, One Laptop Per Child, and the Sayl chair for Herman Miller.

Prior to launching Box Clever, I was a design director at fuseproject. I have worked with clients ranging from consumer goods giants to government agencies, among them Tiffany & Co., Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, and the New York City Department of Health. 

My work has earned awards from ID Magazine, Index, Spark, IDSA, and Red Dot. My work is part of the permanent collections of MoMA, SFMOMA, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Centre Pompidou.

I hold a Masters of Industrial Design from Pratt Institute, where I was also an instructor for several years.
