Expertise Description

I have more than 20 years of experience in the field of Industrial Design with expertise as a Senior Design Director. The teams I lead focus on people’s needs in our time of ubiquitous technology. At a corporate level, I am part of a team which makes decisions on the portfolio of products for the company, about brand, and the products we launch. These products range from soft goods for mobile devices to smart phone and mobile computing accessories, as well as home automation devices.

Areas of Expertise

Professional Experiences

In the course of my career, I have been involved in the consumer insights testing, industrial design, prototyping, conceptualization, research, engineering and marketing of hundreds of consumer products, apps, and trade show exhibits.

Relevant Experiences

I have more than 17 years of experience in the world of Industrial Design and product development. Since about 2002, I have been involved as industrial design lead and art director in more than a hundred different case development projects for MP3 players, cellphones, smartphones, satellite radios, laptops, tablets and Ultrabooks, ranging from light protective cut & sew sleeves to heavy duty, multi-part insert- and co-molded injection molded products. Although I do not have prior experience as an expert witness, I believe my design education, understanding of tooling and engineering, as well as my executive team-level experience at one of the world’s most preeminent design-driven consumer electronics accessory firms prepares me to participate as an expert in a trial situation with credibility.
