There she learned about pottery, Adobe Photoshop, painting, and fundamental drawing skills. She discovered Industrial Design as a senior in high school and immediately applied to the DAAP program.
During her time at DAAP, Bridget developed a focus in outdoor gear, soft goods and color/print. She has had internships at Fossil, Vans, Boa Technology, Skullcandy, and Sidfactor. She has been able to live in some of the most beautiful places in the country including Texas, Colorado, Utah, and California. She has met amazing people and has been given the chance to work on many fun and inventive projects.

Overall, Bridget wants to leave this world better than she found it.
