I'm a designer from Rochester, NY, passionate about helping us design a simpler future. I use design and my creative abilities to help others, and improve the world around me. Every part of my design process is focused on people, their environment, and how we can make our lives more meaningful.
"You just keep thinkin, Butch," is a quote I've heard over and over - and it's important to always dream big.
Currently the lead Industrial Designer at BZDesign, a small multi-faceted consultancy in Rochester, I'm always looking for new experiences and pushing the boundaries of what's comfortable.
I'm always learning, making, and growing.
it's nice to meet you!
