How has Rokform helped you in your career development?

  • Rokform gives me the opportunity to bring crazy ideas to the table. Granted, some of the ideas arein fact crazy, but that freedom stimulates the ability to look at inventive ways to solve problems and create one of a kind products. I'm glad to be a part of that process.

What do you on your days off?

  • I'm an avid mountain biker and motorcyclist, so most often you will find me outside playing off the beaten path on two wheels.

What have you gained from working at Rokform?

  • Perspective on how involved it is to take a concept, move it through the design stages and eventually end up with a completed part. Computer software and 3D printers allow you to design virtually anything you can think of, but designing around manufacturing limitations, that's the true challenge.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

  • Designing products! Technology changes so quickly, it's exciting to see what's around the bend and it's always a surprise

People would be surprised if they knew?

  • I'm a very capable baker. Dessert doesn't make itself and when you have a sweet tooth like I do, there's nothing that compares to homemade goodies.

What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most?

  • Honestly, I love the challenge of taking an idea and turning it into a functioning product. There are so many obstacles to overcome. It's something most people never think about, but sometimes it's really difficult to incorporate all the desired functions/features of a product and design it in a way so it can actually be manufactured.

Motto or personal mantra?

  • Take time to enjoy the things you love

What did you want to be growing up?

  • No joke, I always wanted to be a toy designer. Anytime I would break out my LEGOs I'd think to myself, "Someday I'd like to create the models." I might not be creating LEGO models, but I am designing toys in a sense. So, I'd say I've made it!

What is your favorite/most used Rokform Product? Why?

  • As an active individual I've found that I like the robustness of the Fusion case. It's a sturdy and protective product, yet still gains attention from its style and design.
