Sr. Industrial Designer
A Western New York native, Amy graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with her degree in Industrial Design and a concentration in marketing. Amy is named on 4 U.S utility patents. She has become a bit of a legend around the office with her knowledge of 3-D modeling software and is constantly teaching the rest of the team 9 different ways to do something. Amy enjoys the“”Making things work”” part of the design process and is always learning the specific ins and outs of each industry we touch, especially electronics.
In her down time, Amy likes gardening, sailing, hanging out with her dog, Piper, and playing Kubb, the obscure lawn chess game that Alex is very bad at.
Born in Texas but raised in Western New York, Alex is also a graduate of RIT’s Industrial design program and prides himself on pushing designs as far as they can go (sometimes too far). He brings skills in packaging design from his previous venture in NYC, as well as overseas experience in China from a post-graduation internship. His favorite part of the design process is the Concept Development phase, and is known to do a lot of sketching, coming up with solutions on the spot and thinking outside the box.
Some would label Alex as a nerd… And he would agree. He enjoys everything science fiction, including Star Wars and Marvel, and is into everything technology related.
