Artist and Designer
Many years of experience as an apparel graphic designer and photographer has made me a valuable asset to several fashion companies. A degree in fine arts has enabled me to develop fundamental design and illustration skills. This foundation combined with an additional degree in graphic design with a focus in apparel allowed me to develop a well-rounded knowledge of the field. My design work has been featured in advertisements in issues of Seventeen Magazine and Teen Vogue. My graphic design portfolio features work for such brands as XOXO, Pastry, Skechers, K1X, Reebok, ShedRain, and South Pole with an emphasis in Junior's, Women's wear and Lingerie. I have additional experience as a graphic designer for girls sportswear in brands such as Mary Kate and Ashley, Faded Glory, George and No Boundaries. I've also worked as fashion photographer who has been featured in such publications such as The New York Amsterdam News, US Frontline, YoDona, and The Denver Post. My images and videos have been featured internationally on websites such as Temptu.com, Frontline, JohnSimonDaily.com, Supima.com, ApparelNews.net, and TheLingeriePost.com. I've also photographed high profile runway shows in New York during Fashion Week, as well as for the Hello Kitty brand. Continuing education courses I have taken are fashion illustration, pattern and sample making which have enabled me to familiarize myself with garment construction. My computer experience consists of over seven years in Adobe Illustrator CC, Photoshop CC, InDesign CC, and Final Cut Pro. Both Macintosh and PC platforms.
