Raised in the high-desert of Southern California, I naturally grew an appreciation for nature and outdoor sports. I obsessively focused on whatever gear I had, often wondering how it all worked and how to improve it. This curiosity to improve and desire to learn led me to the CSULB Industrial Design program. I've been fortunate enough to spend the last decade in Santa Cruz working at O'Neill Wetsuits. Surfing daily and designing products that keep myself and thousands of other surfers comfortable in the coldest waters and hottest tropics made it feel like a dream. I love what I do and I think it shows in the products I've designed.
