While studying Industrial Design at the Georgia Institute of Technology I was recognized as a finalist in the Mike Rice Vertical Garden Design Competition in April 2013, awarded Best in Show in the College of Design Open Studio Competition in April 2016, and graduated with Highest Honors in May 2016. 

The following are just some samples of work from throughout the years.

What is Deza?
Deza is an interactive motorcross racing helmet that enhances racers' performance by displaying real-time analytics straight to the driver’s view. Deza measures speed, distance, number of laps, and jump height to allow users to compete against themselves and others.

Project Goal:
The goal of this project is to learn how to use 3D scanning, CAD software and 3D printing to design a product that fits a complex part of the human body and fulfills a need in the current market. Using 3D scanning technology in this instance allows motorcross racers to achieve a perfect fit to their helmet and face while still allocating enough space to hold the technology that would allow them to compete against themselves and improve overtime.

What is Reflector?
Reflector is a reusable metro card that enables travelers to find their destination while in new cities. Made out of electronic paper, Reflector allows travelers to see an interactive view of where they are in their native language without using wifi. 

How does it work?
Most major metros utilize RFID chips at each station to alert patrons of a trains arrival while the individuals on the train are being notified of which station they are approaching. Reflector would use the same technology but gives the added benefit of translating to the travelers native tongue and actually being the card they would use as entry to the metro. For cities that have a high level of crime in their stations this would give a foreigner the added layer of security that a native naturally has by providing them with the same information discreetly hidden on their card. 
Minimizing confusion, increasing confidence empowers travelers to travel safer and discover more.

What is Noom?
Noom is an interactive therapy device designed for message therapists at the Atlanta School of Massage.  
Noom breathes in tune with the human respiratory cycle, ensuring its users can gain proper breathing rhythm at any needed time.

About the design:
In the beginning of this project, we wanted to create an interactive device that a massage therapists could use during a session. We interviewed five local massage therapists who stated they needed a way to help their clients control their breathing throughout long sessions. Because of this feedback we decided Noom should take on the shape of the commonly used massage tool, the river rock. To help control breathing we designed Noom to simulate the human respiratory cycle by expanding and contracting like a diaphragm.

About the design:
This product is one of my favorites simply because it was one of the first things I design as an Industrial Design major. The prompt was simple: design a hand-rake that would ergonomically form to a wide range of users. After multiple foam model iterations and testing on various ranges of hand sizes and grip forms I landed on the above design. Although less complex than some of the other products I could show I still feel it is important to some of my beginning work.
