My name is Char and I am an industrial designer with over seven years of professional work experience. I graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY with a Batchelor's of Industrial Design degree in 2012. For over seven years I have worked in Manhattan designing sunglasses and glasses for a wide variety of brands. I am currently focused on designing high end performance eyewear and furthering my passion for technical wear and gear. I love walking around and seeing my designs out in the wild, and I am truly grateful for the opportunities that life has afforded me and the amazing teams I continue to work with. I find inspiration in my teammates, in getting outdoors, and in learning about new materials and engineering.
You can find me commuting daily to work on my bicycle from Bed-Stuy to Midtown Manhattan, on weekends driving my trusty old Subaru Outback upstate to the Catskills or Bear Mountain with my dog Frankie for some quality time outdoors, running every trail Prospect Park has to offer, dreaming up my next camping adventure, or cooking up a nice dinner for friends.
