Unleashing parkour potential. This is the world's first backpack designed for parkour traceurs (that actually works). Watch the video presentation below or click here to learn more.

The Transcend Backpack defines the competition as the only true high-activity backpack. Follow me on my journey through the design process.

Retro Bro

Handheld Gaming Device

A silent, 40mm axial fan keeps the device running coolly and efficiently even with graphic-intensive games.


Cosmetic Organizers

FULLY FUNDED ON KICKSTARTER in August of 2019! Presenting, my first two patented designs: Shadow Racks are a new way to store, manage and display makeup collections. This is not just another box, bag, or shelf. It's a modular, customizable system designed for makeup users.

What began as a surprise for my girlfriend (now wife) turned into a social media frenzy which then became an Etsy shop that launched on November 11th, 2017. Sales have been entirely social media driven thanks to my wife, who has been marketing my first US Patented designs.


Shadow Rack Organizers bring innovation to makeup organization. They are wall-mountable, linkable and custom fit to display the industry's hottest brands. This is not just another shelf, box or bag. It's a modular, bespoke storage system. They simply tack onto the wall, link together and can also be secured using screws, scotch squares or command strips. With more than 10 sizes and 4 designs, our customers are able to get the racks that suit their individual brand and product preferences. All sizes link together for seamless displaying. Makeup users love the experience of enhancing and transforming their faces, but their morning routine can often be a hurried and stressful time. Vanity spaces should be a sanctuary, a tranquil refuge, and a time to have serious fun with style exploration.


Why Shadow Racks?

The ultimate goal of makeup storage is to be able to see the things that you have, so you can have fun with the new and shiny stuff, but also be reminded to dip into older favorites and get the most out of your investment. In acrylic organizers and drawers it’s still easy for things to go mentally missing (out of sight out of mind). That’s why I invented Shadow Rack organizers, that can utilize wall space to beautifully display makeup collections.
