I have had the opportunity to be part of very successful businesses within some of the world’s most well-known and profitable brands - Fabletics, Beyond Yoga, Roxy, and Manduka.
My almost fifteen years of experience in the design and fashion industry has taken me to New York City, Chicago, Columbus, and to southern California where I currently work from my design studio in Marina Del Rey. I am an accomplished women’s apparel designer having trained at Columbus College of Art & Design, and I’ve showcased my work in a number of fashion show events including Cleveland Fashion Week. I work mostly in the performance, swimwear, sportswear, evening-wear, and couture bridal markets. Additionally, my work has been published in multiple fashion and fitness magazines, as well as been showcased on WGSN and the Today Show.
I love living in southern California. I draw a lot of my inspiration from my love for the ocean and being outdoors. Some of my weekly activities include road cycling, runs on the beach, beach volleyball and yoga.
My approach towards design and business comes from a place of wanting to figure out how things work and how make them better. I am business minded and logical. I not only focus on the creative and design side, but on how to make it happen.
