Pattern Developer with a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Art in Textile and Apparel Studies from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I am a self-starter, creative problem solver, and an innovative thinker who is energetic and strives to maintain a positive outlook in all aspects of life. Art, nature and being outdoors are my inspirations. My passions are in technical design, pattern making, and textiles. Throughout my Master’s coursework I have gained a wide variety of design experience including but not limited to: designing a menswear line, illustrating technical fashion flats, rendering fabric prints in the Adobe C6 suite, creating patterns for garments based on measurements, constructing garment samples, and writing a successful business plan for the line.
It would be my pleasure to contribute my knowledge and expertise to an innovative design team. I am very familiar with the textile and apparel industry and have over ten years of experience utilizing my strong construction and design skills.
