Creating and storytelling through visual and physical design has been a part of my life since childhood. I was 3 years old when my grandparents dedicated a wall in their home to my many ideations and barbie doll clothing designs. Over two decades later, I'm still building visual walls, mapping out design projects, and innovating product.

My career as a Design Director and Lead Designer in global brands include Nike, Adidas, The North Face, Eddie Bauer, and Levi Strauss & Co. Building activewear, sportswear, and outerwear collections with these varied brands has challenged my design perspective in wonderful ways, developed my problem solving muscles, and has given me an amazing toolbox of lifestyle and technical apparel design experience. 

My approach to product creation is part instinct, part research, part process, part team work, and grounded in story telling! I've never met a design challenge I didn't like and I'm always ready to assist others in achieving their creative potential.
