I'm an LA based Women's Apparel Designer with 10 years of experience in Womenswear. My training is from FIT in NYC. I also have a degree in Art from University of California at Santa Cruz.
I have a track record for producing best-selling styles by applying relevant trend research and sales statistics to my designs. I am well versed in overseas communication, tech packs, fit, construction, and quality. My Adobe skills are advanced. I also have several years of experience as a leader in successfully training and mentoring Assistant Designers. I am a team player who believes in strong cross-functional relationships and rolling up my sleeves when a coworker needs a hand.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, I draw inspiration from California, the runways, and travel. I'm a hiker, swimmer, adventurer, eater. I like challenges and learning new hobbies. From snowboarding to embroidery - I want to know about it and give it a try! I have worked in New York, Seattle, and Los Angeles, and I have loved each of these cities for the unique opportunities they offer. The majority of my experience is in cut and sew knits, but I love taking on new categories and customers.
I'm available for Freelance or Permanent design positions!
