Zenith

Design, CAD/CAM/CNC, fixturing

A timepiece designed around the ETA 2824 mechanical watch movement, and producing two finished pieces through a CAD / CAM / CNC workflow that required custom-milled fixtures for rapid off-axis milling.

Ark

3d Scanning, CNC (mill, lathe, router, waterjet), all toolpaths

A modern rocking chair built in a CAD / CAM / CNC workflow based on 3D-scanning of hand-carved geometry for the human touch points while using a mix of aluminum components made by CNC for assembly.

Divisadero

By using 3D scanning to capture the live edge of a slab of wood, the entire piece can be almost completely used in a piece of furniture, virtually eliminating the waste needed to mill square boards for traditional furniture building by using 5-axis CNC milling to create glue joint along the complex organic geometry of the tree.

Plane

This lamp was created in a batch of six, optimizing the capability for rapid and high fidelity prototyping in a short timeframe, with all six pieces being produced within 36 working hours from concept to project completion. This required balancing beautiful design with parts that were fast to hold and faster to flip, with minimal complexity in milling features and few parts for assembly.

  • Design for manufacture

  • CNC mill, lathe, router & all toolpaths

  • 36 working hours concept-to-completion first six pieces

Miranda

Taking hand-carved geometry from Sylvan Ray designer Matthew Sellens through my original 3D scanning workflow in order to create CAD parts, joint and toolpaths for CNC milling the first prototype on custom fixtures. Additionally, offering critical technical perspective during design, and serving as a key interface with the production team at Munsion Joinery in Oakland.

Pivot

This bicycle lock becomes a flexible bike storage solution for hanging on shelves with a simple internal joint. Prototypes were produced in a small batch with CNC and manual machining for Maker Faire to show off an original concept created after a user centered design process in a team of five.

  • rapid prototyping

  • HIGH FIDELIty prototyping

Cirro

This design was recognized with multiple awards by Red Dot and the IDA for its innovative use of materials, which was the result of a months-long exploration of the constraints of vacuum-forming plywood veneers. The solution was a response to the challenge of creating a dynamic sense of volume from a 2D material that cannot make compound bends.

  • Recognized by Red Dot and International Design Award

  • end-to-end process ownership

  • ORIGINAL fabrication workflow

Beacon

This lamp was created around the concept of focus, using a micro-controller and photoresistor to create a simple means of automatic brightness control based on ambient light to preserve concentration.

  • end-to-end process ownership

  • Arduino programming & electronic design

  • Rapid prototyping

Zed

This is a small set of hand-produced steel bicycles I’ve made for fun using all manner of joining techniques, including silver-brazed lugs, brass-brazed fillets, and TIG welding, uniting my passion for building beautiful and precise machines with my love of bicycles. This experience culminated teaching and co-teaching classes at CCA and Stanford in bicycle frame building.

  • precision metrology

  • welding and brazing

Utility

Utility is a sculpture that explores the meaning of making by using progressively intensive manufacturing techniques (hand-carving, sand-casting, and CNC machining) to question the value of our ever advancing capabilities and the cultural notions of progress and improvement.

Flare

This sculptural gathering space and fire pit is permanently installed outside of the graduate design studios at studios at Stanford University, designed and constructed during the span of one week and using over one ton of concrete and hundreds of welded joints. It stands over 10ft high.
