I am passionate about design and all that it entails. Currently, I'm working in the fast paced environment of custom team sports apparel. I've worked on a variety of sports from rugby, M/W lacrosse, women's basketball, track and field, sideline, softball, field hockey, beach volleyball and bobsled. Each category is unique in its own design solutions and innovation. While I love the world of team sports, I'm open to other avenues of design, such as lifestyle and action sports. I welcome and am excited by the challenge each new design presents.
