Fashion industry professional with ten + years experience in Designing and Merchandising a line from concept to completion for companies such as: Oakley, Levi Strauss & Co. and Ogio International. Categories have included: Lifestyle, Active, Resort, Surf, Snow, and Golf for both Apparel and Accessories.
The key to my success stems from my continual passion for product design, all stages of development and understanding the given target market. I'm a team player and excel in collaborating with cross functioning teams to reach critical calendar deadlines and problem solve as needed. I believe every stage of the design cycle plays an integral role in launching a successful collection and I give each phase my full attention; whether it’s creating a line plan, detailed tech packs, reviewing samples or presenting the final line.
My experience working with factories and mills in Asia for development as well as, traveling throughout Europe, Canada and North America for market research, has given me a well rounded perspective of the fashion/ action sport industry and inspires me season after season!
On a personal note, I thrive on exploring new countries, cultures, architecture, interior design, listening to live music and entertaining friends and family. I also enjoy practicing all types of fitness such as: Hot Yoga, Hiking, Road Cycling, Cross Training, Pilates and Cross Country Skiing are some favorites.
