Illustration, Industrial Design

Product designer with 10 years of experience designing tile and home goods. I specialize in surface design.

What I do:
* Product development
* Surface design
* Illustration
* Print & pattern
* Product naming

My design style is modern, clean, and playful. Even when I design a serious product like tile, I like to add an element of fun.

I also illustrate people, and gravitate to projects with themes of diversity and inclusion.

Photography

Let’s be real. There is more to life than work. Which means, for me, there is more to life than retouching. That being said, work is important. It’s just not all-important. It ought to be a source of satisfaction (if done well), as well as a means of support for you and your loved ones. It should be fun! It should be challenging! If you’re pushing your personal envelope it should be occasionally frustrating! For me retouching is all of those things. I’ve spent literally decades honing this craft and, I am proud to say, have achieved a very high level of expertise. I can look at a raw image and, almost immediately, know how it should look and the best and most efficient way to get it there. In many ways retouching is second nature to me. It ought to be after nearly 25 years!

Exceptional products. We never settle for good enough and we never ship until a product meets our standards. We take immense pride in our work.

Stepping boldly into the unknown. Uncharted waters and difficult problems are all fair game. Because we intend to build exceptional, inspirational products, we welcome and encourage brand-new – and potentially risky – ideas.
