LIFE IN THE TOYBOX
Through Summer 2017, I worked in Mattel's El Segundo headquarters in the Toybox Vehicles group. Just down the hall from Hotwheels, Barbie, and a whole host of other iconic toy brands, I regularly got to interface with some of the most creative and experienced minds in the toy industry.
As a project manager for The Fast & Furious line of die-cast cars, I organized with teams across the world and led weekly meetings with managers and directors in my group. I solved problems regarding manufacturing and design, all with the goal of getting the toys on shelves to be as close as possible to the whimsical amazing ideas the toy designers create. Through this I gained experience in design for manufacturing, Agile PLM, and general project management.
