entrepreneurial product design

During my senior year at UIC I designed, marketed, and successfully launched and funded a Kickstarter campaign for a cast iron candle holder. Sindr is now retailing at Wolfbait, Lost Arts, and will be apart of a pop up shop run by the Chicago Design Museum. It is also available for purchase on Etsy and Bigcartel

Sindr (old Norse for spark) is a strike anywhere candle holder born from my love for
playing with fire and my passion for designing objects that enhance our experiences
and add goodness to our lives, no matter how big or small. It is made of cast iron which
beautifully coalesces with it's firey origins in form and function.

to incense
• “Graveyard” scoop to cast hot matches in
