Jeff, like many other makers, was raised on a steady diet of Legos, K’nex, erector sets, and whatever building materials he could get his hands on. Between taking things apart and (sometimes) putting them back together Jeff found his passion in life. After attending the University of South Carolina for two years as a mechanical engineer, Jeff sought out a more hands-on approach to physics in the field of industrial design. At the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Jeff excelled as an industrial designer, placing in design competitions and being selected for scholarly awards on multiple occasions. He is the founder and former chairman of the school’s IDSA chapter. Since graduating from NJIT in 2013, Jeff has worked in a variety of consumer product industries as a product design engineer. Primarily working on innovation teams, Jeff has delivered inventive concepts and secured many patents. He is currently employed at Techtronic Industries (A power tool conglomerate that operates the Ryobi, Milwaukee, and Ridgid brands among others) as a Staff Concept Design Engineer.
