Refined current products by using force testing, constructing proof-of-concept models, and communicating changes needed with faulty factory samples. Worked with marketing and production to create a well-branded POP display for the B&H flagship store. I worked with engineering to prototype and test new headphones, accessories, and loudspeakers; this included the MW50 headphone and new MA770 concrete loudspeaker in collaboration with architect, Sir David Adjaye.
Utilized research, form development sketching, physical model-making, and Solidworks modeling to develop products for clients in a product, furniture, and spatial design consultancy led by two of “Forbes’ 2016 30 under 30.”
Succinct presentations were created to excite prospective clients, including Google Creative Labs, which contained simplistic illustrations and realistic Keyshot renderings.
Assisted 20 incoming College of Design freshman in their development of introductory drawing skills. I also helped lead studio class critiques.
