This powerful Roku streaming media player (Second Generation) was a step forward in the brand's design language to preserve the company's premium offering. While it maintained it's minimal and compact shape, the form became more expressive and tactile. Design developed with the Bould Design team.

CACAO chocolate bars are meant to celebrate to the natural wonders of outer-space. Each chocolate bar features a part of a famous extraterrestrial landscape. The raw 3D data has been gathered by NASA on its various voyages to outer space and been made available to the public. That topographical data was then re interpreted into the chocolate bars you see.
Studio project to design and prototype a chair. Inspiration was drawn from my personal prosthetic.
Client: University of Cincinnati 2011
This was my senior thesis at the University of Cincinnati. I set out to design a rock climbing prosthetic for adaptive athletes, in which the design not only conveys the spirit of the user, but functionally gives the user an mechanical advantage in their sport. The idea is to turn “disability” into “super ability.”
Custom Fabricated Shinguards
I love making. These are all quick personal projects done in my spare time to explore my passions for materials, craftsmanship and arduino.
A twistable puzzle I designed while at the University of Cincinnati. The idea was to take the traditional Rubik’s cube and reinterpret it into a more kid friendly form factor. I took my 3D printed prototype and made silicone molds so that I could make multiple copies of the puzzle.

The book was aimed primarily for sophomore students who are in the process of building their first portfolio. However, the ideas and concepts presented in the book should apply to any designer creating their portfolios.
