Industrial Design Consultant
Faculty / The Art Institute of California
My design philosophy blends good design process, business strategy, common sense and fascination.
I learned good design at the CSULB Industrial Design department.
The MBA program at Pepperdine University taught me business strategy.
My common sense approach comes from 18 years of working in the field of industrial design over 4 continents.
