Entrant Profile

Jesse Thornburg

Location: Knoxville, Tennessee United States


Company: Grid Fruit


Profession: Engineer/Designer


Inspired by: Natural patterns and textures inspire my designs. I have always been a tinkerer and a builder, so I love a systems approach to engineering: designing, building, testing, and debugging. I love to assemble and work with multi-disciplinary teams, and their diverse skills inspire me. Through growing up on a family farm, and there becoming used to constant problem solving, I appreciate seeing elegant solutions which are aesthetically and simply carried out.
