This website was created to showcase my skills in Industrial Design, 3D Printing, Graphic Design, Branding, Web Design, and Storytelling through text and video. If you like this site and you need to hire a Toy Designer, please contact me to review my portfolio because I am looking for work!

The Hero masks and extruded triangle lids were my own designs I used to create new characters and packaging for easier shipment and display of plastic/cardstock canisters that would contain the toy pieces and building instructions inside.

This story was inspired by the LEGO BIONICLE toy line created by Greg Farshtey, Jeff James, Alastair Swinnerton, Christian Faber and Bob Thompson among many more.
