He has led complex system design projects with distributed teams and networks of partners, from creative concept to product certification and post sales support.

Successful consumer, retail, and manufacturing companies innovate constantly to build a more sustainable future by creating new revenue streams, transforming operations, and building competitive advantage. PA’s diverse teams of strategists, designers, scientists, technologists, and engineers help at every step of the journey, solving complex design problems with elegant, functional solutions. PA recently worked with Guide Beauty to co-create and launch a suite of innovative makeup applicators that make it easier for anyone to apply makeup regardless of their physical condition. PA partnered with US start-up Bearpac Medical to enhance the product, service and training design for a medical device to improve patient comfort and control in end-of-life healthcare.
