I graduated from FIDM with a degree in Fashion Design in 2004 and have been working in the apparel industry ever since. I have worked for very small companies as well as large corporations; wearing many hats along the way. I have a passion for the entire development process from initial concept to final production ready garment. Throughout my career I have made it a point to expose myself to all aspects of the business. I strongly believe that you cannot design the best product without understanding the multiple facets of a business. Aside from designing, I have played roles in domestic production; working one on one with local vendors. This has been the most invaluable experience to me thus far. I love working in Illustrator and hand sketching, but I also love fit comments and tech packs!
Outside of my career I spend most of time with my husband, daughter and our two dogs. We love being outdoors and exploring new places by car and by foot. I am inspired by the coast, my family, dance, and the California lifestyle.
I look forward to working together and making awesome goods!
