BIO

I work in Jewelry Design in the San Francisco Bay Area, and graduated from Tyler School of Art with a BFA in Metals/Jewelry/CAD-CAM in 2015. Aside from my professional design work, I maintain a small personal practice. My personal work is split between CAD modeling, experimenting in digital fabrication techniques, and silversmithing work from recycled silver. I place a high importance on efficient prototyping methods, environmentally friendly practices, and ethical material sourcing. My finish pieces often focus on the relationship between traditional hand-craft and modern rapid prototyping processes.
