Color & Trim Design Manager

For 29 years, I was employed by General Motors Design Center.  I have had the privilege to work on all historical brands, visit all of our global design studios, as well as, have overseas assignments.  I have spent over a decade working as the Global Chevrolet Color & Trim Design Manager.   We created an ambiance in the vehicles by designing the colors, materials, and finishes that are familiar yet progressive and will excite customers. 


In February 2018, I moved to Cadillac.  This was a delightful journey leading a new team in exploration of authentic materials and introducing advanced trends and innovative concepts into the brand.    


I have loved my work and the people around the world that I have collaborated with.  I love teaching, coaching and mentoring.  In June 2019, I decided to retire from GM Design and dedicate myself to art, travel and working with companies from afar to assist and share my international experiences in automotive design.
