The concept of this museum was to educate patrons on the impact that water has emotionally on humans.  I felt that water had so many different characters that I wanted to showcase in fun interactive exhibits.  One exhibit in the museum I thought was successful was the water walkway.  This was a pathway with silent walls of water cascading down from either side creating and amazing experience.  To add to the experience would be projections of silhouettes of seas creatures through the falling water which I think would be an amazing effect. 


This museum was mostly inspired by my ocean classroom experience at Proctor Academy – where I sailed a 125’ schooner from Maine to Puerto Rico for two months while taking classes on oceanography and maritime literature on the deck.  I always try and draw from my experiences while I design - the real trick is getting out there and exploring things that may be out of ones comfort zone.





2015 Infinita Catalog

In my position as the Senior Industrial Designer for Expand International US, I managed the new modular SEG exhibit product line we called Infinita.  My duties included designing, installing, and managing the production facility for the product in the warehouse as well as generating many standard booth designs with 3D CAD software.  I then used these designs to create the new catalog for the launch (which you can view here



Renderings created using proprietary software that created a rendering and quote to the customer at the same time.  A great tool that enabled accurate and consistent profit estimation.
