Share profile

Andrea comes from a 10+ year background working in the outdoor & active fashion industry, lending her expertise to major global brands including Nike, Neff and Burton Snowboards. She has personally met with and designed for a wide range of celebrities and pro-athletes including Gwen Stefani (Musician & Fashion Designer) , Chris Paul (NBA all star, LA Clippers) and Kelly Clark (Pro Snowboarder, Olympic Gold Medalist) to name drop a few.

Andrea's aesthetic is colorful, irreverent, vibrant, feminist, positive, whimsical, inclusive, and environmentally conscious. She has applied this filter to her extensive work experience in Apparel Design, Trend Forecasting, Creative Direction, Color Palette Development, Color Merchandising, Fashion Illustration, Pattern/ Textile Print Design, Technical Outerwear, Wovens, Knits, Men's, Women's, Kid's, Accessories, Beanies, Gloves, and Socks.

After returning from a 9 month hiatus traveling Southeast Asia, Andrea is currently interested in collaborative work opportunities with like-minded people and companies who genuinely care about how they impact the world around them (socially & environmentally) and that understand and embrace the freedom and flexibility necessary for creativity to flourish (i.e. not confined to an office space or a rigid schedule).
