i like cars

Since 2010 I’ve worked with companies like ADV.1, PUR, MHT, Niche, RSQuattro, RENNtech, and more.

I personally created the concepts and production designs for ADV’s MV2 (Monoblock Version 2) and Trackspec / Extended Spoke 3-Piece Wheels.

I’ve designed wheels, forgings, cars, accessories, and bespoke fonts for efficient engraving. I’ve also developed engineering processes and created design standards. I’m involved daily in Design for Manufacturing, and am highly proficient at balancing style and manufacturability.

My most recent work is designing and engineering a new brand, 1221 wheels.

BACKGROUND

I’ve been passionate about cars since I was a kid, learning everything I could. (I suppose I’m a quintessential car guy.) Proportions, interesting shapes, and details are fascinating to me; when all are addressed, a design can become more than the sum of its parts.

I have a Bachelor’s in Management and Business Information Systems, but my desire was to design wheels. I’d trained myself to think and see in 3D, so I went back to acquire an Associate’s in AutoCAD and move my career in a new direction. I worked for a structural engineering firm in Las Vegas, where I worked on condos, high rises, and casino projects.

In 2010, I had my first professional automotive industry job – designing a hypercar called the Dagger GT.

It was during the economic downturn in Las Vegas that I saw an opportunity to design and engineer wheels at MHT (Mobile Hi-Tech Wheels) in California. I immediately jumped at the chance and was hired full-time.

From there I was recruited by ADV.1 Wheels to lead their design and engineering departments. I was there until the company was sold to MOMO.

In 2016, I started developing a new line, 1221 Wheels. You can read more about my work here.
