Subtly Effective Design
As a Telecom Designer at TEECOM, Devin enjoys looking at the floor plans, visualizing the space, and designing thoughtful systems. His goal is to design systems that are as intuitive as possible. Devin believes that a good system is one that you don’t have to think about; it just works. When it comes to good design, it should be subtle, yet effective.
Growing up in an outdoorsy family that was constantly camping, hiking, or backpacking instilled Devin’s lifelong love for the environment. While in college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Devin researched solar cooking and built an oven using solar panels and insulation. Devin’s legacy lives on as students continue his research on solar cooking at Cal Poly.
Climbing is Life
It all began when his older brothers bought him a pair of rock climbing shoes. Whether he’s bouldering, top roping, or lead climbing, Devin loves the physics of climbing and how it tests his mechanical engineer brain. While Devin tends to stick to indoor climbing, he’s beginning to explore the natural terrain the Bay Area has to offer too.
Feel the Music
Devin listens to music every day while he works and frequents concerts and music festivals like Outside Lands, Lightning in a Bottle, Treasure Island Music Festival, First City Festival, and CRSSD Fest. Whether it’s electronic, rap, or indie, he loves how music can set a stage for how you’re experiencing life. For example, he tends to listen to artists like Chance The Rapper while commuting amongst all the angry drivers.
