Working as a product designer at Hasbro was my dream job ever since I started my degree in Industrial Design at BYU. I had an amazing time interning on the Pre-School gaming team and loved the tight-knit feel of the team and the enthusiasm for designing hilarious new game experiences. I spent my spare time while I was there meeting with various designers and design directors to see where else my skills and experience might be suited within the company. I was pointed towards an opening on the Burbank Action Brands design team that seemed to be a perfect fit. Working on the Burbank team has been an incredible opportunity with the recent acquisition of Power Rangers and the collaboration with Overwatch. I was surprised how much experience was packed into this second internship: I worked on role play weapons, premium action figures, RC vehicles, quirky collectables, packaging, and even directing concept development with outside vendors. I think that is what I find so appealing about Hasbro is that within the same company there is no limit to the experiences you can have and the things you can create!
