Reid Schlegel is currently an industrial designer in Smart Design's New York City office.

However none of this would have been possible without Virginia Tech's Industrial Design program. As a student at Virginia Tech, Reid was the president and vice president of the IDSA student chapter, received an honorable mention in the 2010 IDEA awards and won the IDSA Student Merit Award. Reid loves how design can be used as a force for good and has an inner passion for humanitarian projects.
