Outdoor Gear + Equipment Design

Outdoor Gear + Equipment Design

I specialize in designing and developing outdoor gear: backpacks (technical + lifestyle), daypacks, travel gear, sleeping bags, tents, and accessories. When embarking on an outdoor adventure, typically it’s only a few pieces of beloved equipment that are brought along on the journey.  I know this because I love to be outside, and I am very particular about the gear I choose to carry whether I’m mountain biking, trail running, climbing, or on a long backpacking trip.  I’ve always felt that the best gear is uncomplicated, lightweight, comfortable, and goes “unnoticed” because the details are well thought-out. Interestingly, it is the most loved equipment that often holds sentimental value for the life-changing experiences they come to symbolize…

I enjoy designing outdoor gear because the necessity to focus on functionality and fit makes the process challenging and collaborative.  But what makes me passionate about designing outdoor gear, is the multiplicity of ways that gear connects both physically and emotionally to the individual who loves to be outside. 

I am currently available for consultant work and always enjoy new collaborations.   For more about my design process please see my portfolio flipbook.
