Creative Apparel Concepts
Mar 2011 - Present (10 years 3 months)
In it’s 11 years in business, CAC has become a one stop shop for nearly all of your apparel needs. I gladly spent my first year as a production artist separating art files for Walmart’s collegiate program, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, CAC’s own Sleepwear brand Munki Munki and many others. Learning the production side of apparel was key when making the shift to designing in early 2012. I am proud to say that my designs are thoughtful, highly artistic and sample ready. Along with designing for all of CAC’s vast client base I have had the privilege of creating art for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s inductee brand (debuting at Magic 2013) and played a major role in the concept, design, production and launch of CAC’s quirky house brand Faux Real.

Spartan Promotional Group
Sep 2008 - Mar 2011 (2 years 6 months)
Spartan is nationally recognized in the field of corporate and private promotions. My vast duties included, client consult, art concept and design, art proofing and pre-press quality checks. I updated and maintained a large catalog of digital files assuring nationally known clients that their public identity is safe in my hands. Spartans production facility boasted both a screen print and embroidery department and it is in there that my passion for designing for apparel began. I learned the value and art of a one color scree print and that embroidery can be cool as well.
