First thing out of design school I went to work for contract furniture designer Warren Snodgrass. I developed design aesthetics and engineering concepts through sketches, mock-ups, models and prototypes.

Working with Warren I helped to develop the Catalyst line of seating for Haworth, outdoor seating for Brown Jordan and Tropitone, and high density stacking chairs for Knoll.

I still have a strong interest in the contract furniture market and continue to develop concepts when the opportunity arises.

All of the concepts shown on this page and in the slide show above are my own designs. The photograph of the Perception chair by Tropitone is property of Tropitone and is designed by Warren Snodgrass.
