Neocon 2018

The 2018 Neocon was definitely a unique one for me!  

 

For over a year I worked with Joey Ruiter while he developed new product for Herman Miller.  Two months prior to Neocon I was contracted in to the Steelcase Model Shop to help with some sculptural elements that would be showcased at Neocon.  There was so much to be done and under a tight time line!  

I am thankful to have been a part of both teams!

Sharing a solution for near sighted children living in poverty

Meeting Eugene Koning in 2015, I was soon captivated by his life long dedication and passion to help the less fortunate with sight.
I helped to develop his process of making glasses for near sighted children and traveled to India for two conferences sponsored by Partners Worldwide.
Today I am still searching for a champion to help make this solution a reality.
