Design with intention
Project Brief: Design, prototype and produce face shields to combat the COVID 19 crisis
Face shield redesign
Designed around all abilities
Unlike competitors, the ergonomics, rigidity and needs of the face shield were designed around people of all abilities. The strong and simple construction, organic form and overall use, made the consumer base larger than ever before.

I was chosen by CBS TV Channel for proactiveness, teamwork and community service that helped many frontline workers during the PPE shortage
My story was telecast on August 5th 2020 in KPIX CBS Channel 5.
Due to the limited amount of time, ideation had to be quick, concise and effective to deliver the final product.
Rapid prototyping and production
Prototyping was fast, efficient, and progressive. 3d printing was chosen as the method of manufacturing, and over 600 face shields were produced. at home and distributed to Kaiser, Sutter, Santa Clara County and Alameda County Hospitals.
Works for 8-9 hours with patients suffering from COVID-19
The face shield project helped identify me as a leader in helping with the PPE crisis during the pandemic.
After many deliveries, I recieved the Jefferson Award by CBS for my design as well as my community service at the time of the pandemic.
