My background is very broad ranging from action sports and juniors apparel to technical performance and lifestyle. I encourage a challenge and strive to continue to grow as a mentor and leader in the industry.
For the last year I have been working on contract with Nike in product management for graphic tees and headwear. Prior to that, I was freelancing for various large companies including New Balance, Showers Pass and Defyance Apparel. Defyance Apparel allowed me to establish a new startup initiating creative direction, design language, color stories, line plans, production calendars, tech packs, design and development of trims, sourcing, and merchandising of the line.
I have also had the privlage to manage the US apparel design team for Puma, Sr. Design for Adidas Women's Performance apparel and a designer for some of the most cutting edge categories at Columbia Sportswear.
