Design by feeling.

Hi, I'm Jared! 

I am a designer who is driven by solving problems through physicality and lateral thinking.  

As a kid I always wanted to be an inventor. I loved taking things apart and figuring out how they worked and were assembled. This curiosity propelled me through college and to Seattle, where I would spend the better part of the next decade designing systems and structures for ferries, research vessels, pilot boats and other various workboats.  Now, my curiosity has brought me to the discipline of industrial design. Throughout my time at Art Center I challenged myself develop with unique, but practical research driven designs. I am passionate about the prototyping process and I have a hands on approach to product development.
