Leader, Ceramics Product Development, Fixtures R&D, Lixil
For the entirety of my 15 year career, I have been designing and developing kitchen and bath products at Lixil, a Global Water Technology company. My passion for CAD design started in high school and has continued throughout my career. I graduated from New Jersey Institute of Technology with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and began my career as a CAD Drafter shortly after. I continued to learn and gain a deeper passion for CAD, holding various CAD design and manager roles within R&D over the past 15 years. In my current role, Leader of Product Development for the Ceramic product category, I am responsible for innovation, new product development and product lifecycle maintenance. I have a team with various Engineering backgrounds dedicated to improving user experience with each product through innovation. We work in a global organization, where collaboration and alignment across multiple regions allows us develop products which are introduced into markets all over the world.
