The following pages are a few examples of my industrial design work as it translates to products on the market. The value of a project is not always reflected in the end result, but more importantly in the process. Additional process-oriented work can be seen under the "Expertise" heading in the navigation bar.

Baxter is an adaptive, collaborative manufacturing robot. It contains cameras, sensors and sophisticated software that enable it to “see” objects, “feel” forces and “understand” tasks. The result is a robot that automatically adapts to changing environments. It knows what you mean and does what you expect. My efforts at Rethink Robotics were focused on information architecture, gripper design, and directions for use.
The "Fiji" margarita maker was the first product produced as part of the Margaritaville product line. To this day, it represents a significant success story for the team at Altitude and Jarden. I was fortunate to collaborate and take a leadership role in the research, brand strategy, product development and line extension efforts.
As a brand, the Margaritaville line continues to grow. The authentic character and high quality of the original products have withstood the test of time.
adorne Under Cabinet Lighting
The adorne line of under cabinet modules is more that just lighting, and is a significant player in the marketplace. This Legrand success story has earned multiple awards. I am honored to be a part of the Legrand and Essential development teams who produced this category innovation.
Sensable Omni was the first available consumer option in the 3D haptic peripheral device category. Even today the device is being used for a variety of haptic applications. I am glad to have been a part of the team at Manta and this development effort which has transcended time, and is looking to the future.
Skybar Wine Preservation
Jarden launched an entire line of wine products under this brand, each bringing a high quality wine experience to the consumer and increasing the quality of entertainment at home. Achieving quality and elegance at price point, while maintaining usability and performance provided a complex design challenge for this collaborative effort with Altitude.
Neil Pryde Contest
As a participant in a contest sponsored by Neil Pryde Bikes, I was awarded the honor of being a finalist. The contest was conducted in a worldwide context and explored color and graphic application to a new bike frame based on the theme of "Freedom".
iRobot is a widely recognized brand in the home based robotics world. As an industrial designer and part or the Scooba and Manta design teams, it was a rewarding experience to work on the introduction of the first "wet" robotic sweeper product.
NeuroMetrix NC Stat Adaptor
The NeuroMetrix NC Stat Adaptor developed at Manta was part of the original NC Stat system. The system was a point of care device capable of detecting nerve impulses and using them to diagnose diabetic neuropathy. NeuroMetrix continues to develop systems in point of care and wearable markets in the neurological arena.
imt630 by Altec
Working with Essential and the team and Altec Lansing, we developed several audio products to enhance their line. The imt630 is a portable audio dock for use with iPhone or iPod.
The AURA™ 3D Ear Scanning System directly captures ear canal shape digitally, making a more comfortable experience for patients and a faster, more streamlined process for audiologists and manufacturers. Safe and reliable, the AURA’s all in one video otoscope and digital scanner may drive innovation for custom-fit ear devices in the audiology marketplace. As a collaborator with Boston Device Development and Octane Design, we combined this innovative technology approach with user interaction to create a compelling product.
Technology and medical products for the most part seem to live in the world of gray and black with color accents, while consumer products play in the world of color....I believe in the power of color used strategically. Orange and Black are the team colors for Comprehensive Racing's Triathlon and Cycling teams. You can spot this team anywhere they race with the signature look I designed for them. Allez! Allez!
Bose Lifestyle V-Class
The Bose Lifestyle V-Class Home Theater System was developed while I freelanced as part of the team at Altitude. Focusing on the complex audio performance and interaction aspects of the product while integrating the Bose heritage of simplicity was a rewarding challenge.
