Work Experience

The Fine Print Co. | Raleigh, NC
Principal | Summer 2011 - Fall 2012
The Fine Print Co. was a home grown operation in which a classmate and I started a screen printing company which promoted design driven prints and innovative eco conscious printing processes.
During our 18 months of operation, we developed an excellent client base and involved ourselves in several community outreach projects.
We ultimately were approached with an offer and made the decision to sell the company to pursue careers in other creative venues.

North Carolina State University | Raleigh, NC
Design Lab Technician | Spring 2011 - Spring 2012
My responsibilities were to maintain a safe working environment while assisting students in the planning and construction of models, prototypes and mock ups. I also performed routine maintenance on the labs equipment, including milling machines, lathes, bandsaws, table saws, planers, orbital and belt sanders, TIG and MIG welders, plasma cutters, etc.

Enventys | Charlotte, NC
Junior Design Intern | Summer 2011
As a design intern at Enventys I was actively involved in preparing sketches, presentations and prototypes. I regularly participated in meetings with clients as well as other departments within the company. Including a meeting in which a client selected my logo design to brand their company. During my three month internship I learned many valuable lessons about business as well as design.
