I‘m a designer, artist, educator and creative enthusiast working in the fashion industry for 20+ years. Creative problem solving has become my mantra designing for a global audience. My career in fashion has spanned diverse design markets from international brands such as Perry Ellis, Issey Miyake and JOOP!; to large-scale fast fashion for Limited Brands; and the celebrity influence as the Creative Director for Hilary Duff. Designs have been featured in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Marie Claire, Lucky, The New York Times, New York Magazine and Women’s Wear Daily.
My creative energy comes from curiosity and exploration discovering and working in new mediums. It may take form in fashion, illustration, communication or education but the common thread revolves around the human experience.
I support my creative vision through collaboration from the world’s leading mills, manufacturers and application of my technical knowledge to achieve editorial and profitable results. Collections have been sold at Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s and international specialty boutiques.
Currently, I’m a fashion industry design consultant and Adjunct Faculty member at Parsons School of Design and Fashion Institute of Technology teaching design, illustration and digital. I recently contributed to author Martin Dawber latest text “The Complete Fashion Sketchbook” that included examples of my work and student curated projects.
