I'm an Industrial Designer in Toronto. I believe in technology-based innovation and authentic traditions in manufacturing and craft.

I currently work for Teknion where I design and develop contract furniture with our in-house team and contract designers.

Previously, I worked in San Francisco for an online accessories company: Photojojo. I led the product development for IRIS, a photographic lens system for camera phones.

Some of my other experiences include:

-Canada Post, where I re-designed mail delivery systems.

-A Wheelchair Startup, where I collaborated with a marketer and engineer to design a new transport chair from scratch.

-Umbra, where I worked with senior designers to bring new products to market.

-I attained my Bachelor of Industrial Design from Carleton University in Ottawa. I also did an study abroad term at Monash University.
