For over 10 years now I've been waking up in the morning and making clothes. And people give me paychecks to do it. I've seen trends come and go, and come back full circle. Constant research is of the utmost importance to be successful in this industry, but pushing the envelope is how you stand out from the pack. The one thing I can say with 110% certainty is that I love what I do and I give full effort to anything I am working on. Specialties: My specialty lies in the apparel business. I have a great deal of knowledge in all of these areas: art and design, art direction, branding, brand building, product development, building a collection, screen printing techniques, embellishment techniques, tech packs, color separation, trend forecasting, cads, cut & sew knits, fabric wash treatments and denim wash development.
