So I've come to the conclusion that I would like to have one life changing experience per year...
Not a bad goal right? So this year, I am planning on attending a 12 Day Mountaineering School at the Kahiltna Glacier with Alpine Ascents International in Alaska.
When not designing, I can be found wrenching on my project car (87' BMW 325is) or outdoors. I am a catch & release fisherman who loves travel, culture, and sushi (but wont eat seafood any other way).
I like to think I work well under pressure, so I am constantly looking for the next adventure/challenge to improve my skillset and make me feel uncomfortable. Trial and Error always taught me better than books.

Initially pursuing an Athletic Training degree, I stumbled upon the Industrial Design program and instantly found my calling. After all who doesn't want to take courses in blacksmithing, 3D modeling, and design drawing? The rest is history.
