Q. As an engineer, how are you making an impact?

Having played football at Harvard, my engineering and athletic journeys were always intertwined, so I am blessed to be able to engineer and design footwear products aimed at providing the best performance and experience for the athlete. Function is such an integral part of the engineering solutions, so it has been fun and amazing to test and design against what functions best for the athlete. I've always treated innovations as solutions to problems that people didn't even know existed, so it has been a fun experience to think about new ideas that appeal to the consumer/athlete.
