I feel very grateful to be working among the mountains of New Hampshire. It was here that I took my first week long backpack trip as an awkward pre-teen. The pack was a simple external frame pack, made of blue nylon ripstop. It had only one pocket. Like most outdoor folks, I developed an unusual attachment to this pack. Of course, it carried what I needed, but over the years it also started to carry all the transformative, life changing memories that accumulate with each new journey.

This past summer I found my Uncle Ivan’s  boy scout pack (he was 84 years young). It was lovingly adorned with hand painted graphics of soaring eagles and Indian arrowheads. Symbols of his boyhood travels and dreams. Through this pack, I could glimpse into his youthful self of starting fires, getting wonderfully lost, and sharing the stars with other members of his tribe.

How many campfires and late night star wanderings did this pack share in its lifetime?

I enjoy the challenge that comes with designing objects that travel with people. I feel that I’ve done my job well when something I’ve designed goes unnoticed. It is my sincere hope that the traveler can focus on the experiences of the journey – not on the objects they carry.

Thank you kindly for taking the time to look at my design portfolio. For more about my design process please see my portfolio flipbook.

I am currently available for consultant work and always enjoy new collaborations.
