I’m a Fashion Designer with a career emphasis in Denim. As an Art Director, I carry a pretty full workload, but I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way. My passion is creating a story around a product or brand. Over the years I have successfully built brands from concept to consumer, including a few of my own.
I began designing professionally in 2003 with my first collection of denim. In 2005, I launched an evening wear collection in Austin, TX during ATX Fashion Week and debuted that same collection shortly thereafter at The Dallas Market. It wasn’t long before my dresses were being sold nationwide through an eCommerce site I built myself as well as on eBay. In one year’s time, I had sold hundreds of wedding and bridesmaid dresses online.
My first design job in 2007 was with Russell-Newman (now owned by Industrial Renaissance Inc.) designing lounge wear and sleepwear for private label companies such as: Saks 5th Ave., Belk, Wal-Mart, JC Penney, Federated, TJ Maxx and Dillards.
My career took me everywhere from New York to Los Angeles where I worked as a Designer with premium brands such as Prospect Denim, Brown Label Jeans, JCPenney, Miller International and Solow. I have had the privilege of being involved in the premium denim market when it was at it’s peak and worked with some of the best mills, factories and wash houses in LA and in the world.
I now work as Designer and Art Director for brands and companies who are seeking to launch a new product or brand, or elevate their current brand. I am especially interested in the fashion and lifestyle markets as they relate to influencers.
I live in New England and NYC. When I’m not working my ass off, I’m traveling my face off.
