This experimental radio features a flexible strip of vellum that acts as both an indicator of the radio’s state and an abstraction of a sound wave. Moving the translucent bar in the front changes the radio's volume as well as the height of the waveform, while moving the slider on top changes the tuning and the shape of the wave. Designed as a study in physical interaction, this object attempts to create an intuitive connection between its controls and their effect.
Problem: Many simple products exist for watering a lawn, but controlling and scheduling them effectively is difficult and often wasteful. It's hard to remember when and how often to water, and consumers lack solid information about the best way to maintain their lawn.
Solution: A smart flow controller that syncs with a companion app to make controlling and scheduling above-ground sprinklers simple. The app takes the hard work out of watering a lawn, intelligently adjusting scheduling based on factors like weather and temperature and giving users and accurate picture of their water consumption.
A children’s seat designed to encourage play. It can stand upright in a stable position or rest upside down, where it can rock back and forth. The playful colors and materials invite experimentation, while the form is general enough that children are free to imagine their own uses.
I produced three of these fidget toys as an exercise in designing the most satisfying interaction possible in order to keep someone's hands busy and help with distraction. The interaction consists of rolling a steel ball around a wooden bowl with magnets embedded in the bottom.
A system of food storage containers to improve the experience of taking a meal with you.
With styling based on KitchenAid branding, this system of containers allows you to take only as much space as you need. It includes two sizes of containers which can be combined in multiples and easily hooked together by pulling the slots of the flexible rubber strap over the tabs on top of each lid.
SHIFT is a tool to help people bike more efficiently. Its simple LED meter helps riders intuitively adjust their pedaling speed and choose the right gear to maximize efficiency and reduce strain.
I use sketching as a method of explaining concepts, telling stories, and exploring ideas in 3D space.
