¬†Aloha! My name is Summer Kapuaimilia Mundon. I was born and raised on an organic farm located in the beautiful Waimea mountains in Kamuela, Hawaii. I have received my Bachelors of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Masters of Science degree in Product Design and Manufacturing from Boston University’s College of Engineering. I recently just left a Mechanical Engineering position at a startup called Altaeros located in Somerville, MA.

I quickly learned when I entered industry that I enjoy consumer-related product design with an emphasis on sustainability. I hope this portfolio and part-time blog can help demonstrate both the need for sustainable design and the processes associated in bringing products through their development cycles as well as their end-of-life cycles. One of my goals is to eventually produce my own line of products that follow these sustainable initiatives, most notably the standards highlighted by Cradle to Cradle.

If you have any questions about my work/projects feel free to contact me at smundon@bu.edu. Mahalo for stopping by!
