My name's Cougar.
I'm a designer because I love crafting meaningful experiences for people through everyday products. I'm currently pursuing this as CEO and Head of Product for Montage, a company I founded in 2016.
This site showcases some of my favorite past-projects and whimsical product creations..
Thanks for visiting!
