EXPERIENCE

Pokemon Team Designer at WCT/Jazwares

10/18 - Current

   

It's an honor to be one of three key designers on the Pokemon plastics team and have helped developed over 100+ products for the line, from action figures to role play, feature plush and more. I have worked closely with internal teams, overseas manufacturers, vendors, and the licensor to build a successful and vibrant product line. My involvement in the design process has extended from the early stages of blue sky ideation all the way to final product and running changes. We work to continuously bring innovation to the line each year while also selecting new stand out characters and old fan favorites to construct a line architecture that keeps trainers excited for more. My position as a designer on this small team has also allowed me to step up as a leader and mentor to train and manage nearly a dozen different interns, freelancers, and temp designers. 

MOOSE TOYS INTERNSHIP

6/16-12/16

   

My role at Moose began as a design intern working to gain experience in both product design and illustration but transitioned to that of a key member of the Pikmi Pops design team. During my six months at Moose I had the pleasure of working on brands such as Shopkins, Shoppies, Betty Spaghetti, Beados, and a few other up and coming brands for Moose. I was most heavily involved in the successful collectible scented plush line, Pikmi Pops in 2018. On this brand I worked with the lead illustrator to create over 40 new characters and dozens of graphic patterns for the line. I also worked with the brand's lead product designer to execute manufacturing specifications for the product line.
