about

Hey! How's it going?

My name is Justin and was born and raised in Los Angeles. I was the kid that was always buying broken toys, fixing them and selling them. I was always interested in problem solving and had the desire to help other people which took me on a path to criminal justice. What that lacked was a creative outlet for me, plus I would have been the worst cop... When I discovered product design, I knew I found the career path that I wanted to be in. I am able to create change at a higher level while solving problems and being creative about it.

I enjoy finding simple design solutions. Through hands-on immersive research, I design products that are functional and best serve the user. I leverage my experience in manufacturing, business strategy with innovative thinking to deeply solve the problem. Ultimately, I want to make a positive impact; one that moves us forward as a society.

During my free time, I enjoy playing football(go seahawks!), rock climbing, muay thai, and eating too much pie.
