I first experienced Chicago as a second-year design student. While visiting Motorola's downtown studio I had the chance to present my portfolio to the design team, and the following year I was offered a summer internship. This lead to full time employment with Motorola's Consumer Experience Design (CXD) group, which was exciting, overwhelming, frustrating, and enlightening. I worked on a variety of concept and production programs, and focused significant efforts towards sustainability as an eco design lead. I did research in Brazil, a project for Burton, and worked with the Beckhams (and that's just the B's). After Motorola I returned to Chicago to work at MNML, a small yet highly influential consultancy with a high calibre of clients such as Microsoft, Nike, and Dell. To this day I continue to work with Chicago consultancy Magic+Might on a broad range of projects where design, interaction, research, prototyping, and future vision are core values.
