I work as a toy designer here at laser pegs. After graduating with my B.F.A. in Industrial Design from The University of Kansas, I wanted to venture out of the Midwest and ultimately landed in sunny Florida. My passion for design started in childhood. I was always drawing or building with my own collection of construction toys. Now I get to design the toys too. I often draw inspiration from Japanese pop art, anime, and retro toys and games.
You can usually find me drawing or playing video games when I’m not working. I live in Sarasota with my fiancé, Jeremy, and our dog, Violet. Violet is an obedience school flunky, but hopes to one day learn to roll over on command.
