Born and raised in Ohio, I am a Senior Apparel Design professional currently living in Northern California.
Having an impressive career both 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. I have also had the pleasure of working for one of America's most beloved and successful retailers - Kohl's Department Stores.
My additional experience working on the vendor side has given me a unique perspective into designing for multiple private labels across a variety of price points, each label encompassing a unique and distinct brand DNA.
Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to indulge and expand on my love of all things indigo and handcrafted.
