With an unwavering dedication spanning over two decades, I've been instrumental in driving the commercial success and elevating the value of consumer-focused products. Since the inception of my professional journey in 2003, I have assumed diverse roles, including Designer and Creative Lead, collaborating on a global scale with agencies, retailers, and brands. Additionally, I've held pivotal positions as Founder, Design Manager, and Principal Design Lead, making substantial contributions to a wide array of projects encompassing electronics, food/beverage, health/beauty, home and garden, kitchen/houseware products, fashion, toys, impulse buys, and soft-lines.
My extensive experience, coupled with a profound understanding of product-driven strategies, end-user dynamics, marketing, strategic planning, and manufacturing, equips me with a comprehensive insight to successfully launch new products, uphold brand recognition, and rejuvenate existing products for commercial expansion.
Over the past 17 years, I've forged enduring collaborations with manufacturers in the US, China, and Europe, enriching my portfolio through partnerships with prominent figures in their respective markets. My fervent passion lies in assisting companies in creating and branding iconic products that yield measurable ROI.
