Apparel & Denim Designer, Creative Director
With over 10 years under my belt as a Fashion Designer and over 6 years as a Creative Director, I’m well-versed in product development from concept to consumer. My experience includes working with startups to billion dollar brands. My career began while I was attending Wade College of Fashion in Dallas, TX in 2005. It wasn’t long after I was launching my own line of bridal and formalwear at the Dallas Market and later, designing professionally for brands such as JC Penney, Saks 5th Ave., Belk, Ross, TJ Maxx and WalMart. My career took a turn in 2007 with denim in the heart of LA’s garment district. From 2007 to 2014, I designed juniors collections and denim for men and women for Miller International, JCPenney and various LA-based boutique brands. Having worked with so many companies, large and small, I’ve learned very valuable lessons in product development, branding and marketing from start to finish. Being resourceful with marketing budgets that were at times almost zero also helped me hone in on the skills that most people either ignore or outsource, thus never learning first hand.
What I do
I now offer my expertise as a Fashion Designer and Brand Developer, specializing in denim and sportswear for fashion companies, and social influencers looking to expand their brand. If you need assistance creating a new brand, updating or building your current brand or elevating your successful brand further, shoot me an email and let’s have coffee. I spend my time between New York City and Hartford, CT.
