Hiya! I mostly create apparel and accessories using licensed artwork for folks like Sanrio, Disney, Cartoon Network, and Tootsie, but I also create original graphics for private label items. Basically, if you've walked by a Hot Topic in the last 5 years, you've seen something I made. Currently I'm the lead doll designer for The Disney Store, where I get to do a ton of amazing things- from fashion design for collector dolls to art directing toy photoshoots. I'm currently the sole designer for all Designer, Limited Edition, and Live Action dolls. I also work on new synergy dolls (for Feature Animation). Outside of product design, I also create tech packs for everything in my portfolio, do book illustration and art shows - a little bit of everything, really, so feel free to drop me a line about whatever!
