I'm an engineer and creative technologist with a passion for creating products that help people live better. I believe great products begin with a deep understanding human desires, are conceived through iteration and failure, and succeed by obsessing over the details.
Essential is a design consultancy that partners with clients to design and commercialize products in the medical, consumer, and industrial sectors. While each day and project are unique, some of my responsibilities include:
As an intern at IDEO, I worked on projects spanning the medical, consumer goods, and healthcare industries.
Nima builds connected devices that test food for unwanted ingredients, such as gluten and allergens. I worked with Nima's cofounders to build the first functional prototype of their product and secure seed funding.
I worked with a team at GE Global Research to design and build VehicleForge - a web platform used to crowdsource engineering designs for the US military. The VehicleForge program went on to crowdsource the design of an amphibious infantry assault vehicle.
