I am a Product Designer! I am studying towards a BSc in Product Design at Brighton University (UK). I have dual citizenship to the UK and USA so I have chosen to spend my internship year here in Minnesota. After taking a great interest into ergonomics and interactive studies, combined with the engineering nature of my course, I have designed and produced some interesting products. My goal is to design and construct products that will create a lasting impression through quality and innovation. This is why I believe that an Internship at your firm will give me the opportunity to develop my skills and talents to benefit a well established, recognized global company, while allowing me to gain valuable professional experience.
