— Yes, I’m a middle aged man and I’m proudly still playing with toys! —
I graduated from Art Center College of Design over 21 years ago and have been working in
children’s entertainment ever since. Although my degree is in Product Design, I’ve been fortunate
enough to work not only in toys, but also in video games, t.v. animation, and even theme park design.
My diversified experience brings fresh thinking and innovation to the exciting world of toys.
My responsibilities have included:
– Leading brainstorming meetings and ideation
– Producing concept design sketches and renderings
– Building and testing of rough study models
– Presentation of concepts and models
– Generating control drawings and technical illustrations
– Directing overseas engineering and manufacturing
– Coordinating design with marketing, packaging, licensor teams
-Management of Junior Designers
-Creating finished packaging illustrations
Here’s a short list of some of the companies I’ve worked with below.
