I'm an industrial designer based in Vancouver, Canada, passionate about products and systems that help people play outdoors. My love for the outdoors is largely driven by growing up on the North Shore where I spent most of my time in the mountains rock climbing, biking and skiing. I climbed competitively for 10 years, representing Canada on the international level. Prior to design, I studied cinematography and lighting, and worked as a lighting technician in Vancouver’s film industry on TV series and feature films such as Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Underworld: Awakening, and Godzilla. I'm currently working at Arc'teryx as a Designer for the Ascent category.
