November 2016 to May 2020 - 3 yrs 10 months at San Francisco Airport
Worked at San Francisco Airport designing new wayfinding campus wide. This included planning and design of digital and static signage, cartography, user testing all products and everything in between. I worked with the awesome City ID team from Bristol, UK and we laughed every day.
Some highlights for me included formalizing standards around sign materials (sustainable! source-able! affordable!) and planning of the AirTrain platform spaces.

2012 to 2016 at 4 yrs at Academy of Art University
MFA Student in Industrial Design
Working in package design made me realize I wanted to have influence over what products were created, so I turned my attention towards product design. I began the online program MFA program at AAU while working full time as a package designer in San Luis Obispo.

Feb 2010 - Aug 2014, 4 yrs 7 months at Gibson Enterprises
