Hi all, I am Ted. I love challenging settings. I am looking forward to immersing myself in the world design. Before Products of Design I served in the Army and attended Columbia University. I served for four years in the Army as a member of the 75th Ranger Regiment. This last spring I completed my undergrad in Political Science. In spite of my urban condition I yearn to be in the outdoors. Prior to moving to NYC I strove to become a high altitude mountaineer. In this process I became rather comfortable climbing Mt. Rainier and I summited Mt. Denali. I would say that my appreciate for design came from extensive experience in its application both in the Army and mountaineering. I look forward to finding ways to inform my prolific experience as a user with my political science education.
