“If it’s a good idea and it gets you excited, try it,
and if it bursts into flames, that’s going to be exciting too.”

– Jim Coudal

I love to learn about new people, so I have been an avid traveler since high-school. I would previously write about my travels and observations on product design, use, adaptation to unexpected situations, and occasionally brilliant ‘misuse’. These days, I am always ready to chat about the world and design, give me a shout.

I live near Chicago while designing new-to-the-world devices and smiling a lot.

Work with Conall

I want to talk to you! I am always eager for opportunities to exercise my user-centric research capabilities, technical skills, creativity, leadership skills, and quirky energy. A context-sensitive design thinker and mechanical engineer by training, I am a committed team leader in consumer and medical product design and development, communications, manufacturing, and business. I am people-oriented and aim to seamlessly integrate user-centered research, product design, project management, business growth, and team management.
