I AM A

TEXTIlE

NERD

 I DESIGN KNITWEAR

 AND USER INTERFACES

 

 

My training in art, fashion, and ui has inspired me to bridge the gap between yarn, stitch, and pixel. I merge my deep background in knits with digital technology to help companies in the wearable space. I'm drawn to developing products that sustain and serve our future.

 OSCAR DE LA RENTA REVIEWED

SWEATERS I DESIGNED FOR

HIS BRAND AND SAID,

"THIS IS WHAT KEEPS US IN BUSINESS"

MOST APPAREL DESIGNERS AREN'T 

SPECIALIZED IN KNITWEAR.

 

I understand the machinery, gauges, and yarn combinations needed to develop original products consumers want to buy.

I save companies time and money. Clear communication with factories gets better results at a lower cost.

I've honed my aesthetic sense designing for industry leaders: Donna Karan, Adrienne Vittadini, Julien Macdonald,

and Oscar de la Renta.

My designs sell in the vast marketplace.

 WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY

IS INVENTING A NEW CONTEXT FOR CLOTHING. YARNS THAT CHANGE COLOR, OR MONITOR A HUMAN HEARTBEAT ARE WHAT'S NEXT. I'M READY TO KNIT THE NEW CODE. 

THE FUTURE IS OURS
