Making the fast look faster! I was privileged to be instrumental in the design development of the critically acclaimed and multi-award-winning INDYCAR UAK-18 Aerokit manufactured by Dallara. I assisted Indycars Director of Aerodynamics Tino Belli with styling and creative direction for the 2018 Universal Aerokit. The assignment involved collaboration with the design, aerodynamic and engineering departments at both Indycar and Dallara.


I worked on the aesthetic appearance of the car, making sure it hit Indycars highest expectations while also collaborating with Dallara to ensure that the aerodynamic and safety targets were also hit. The design has been critically acclaimed and gathered many awards and plaudits.
