ABOUT ME

Born and raised in Ohio, I am a Senior Apparel Design professional currently living in Brooklyn, New York.

Having an impressive career designing and leading design teams to create compelling and sought-after product, I have been privileged to work for two of the world's most iconic denim brands - Levi Strauss & Co and Calvin Klein Jeans - and have also had the pleasure of working for one of America's most beloved and successful retailers - Kohl's Department Stores.

Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to indulge and expand on my love of all things indigo and handcrafted.

- Creative Concept Direction
