In addition to having 11 years experience snowboarding, I also have a passion for mountain biking, skateboarding, surfing and anything outdoors especially the camping and hiking that usually go along with those adventures! I would like to use my artistic & creative talents to support that lifestyle. I have studied Fashion Design & Construction, Graphic Design & Fine Arts in hopes to design amazing, beautiful, functional & comfortable gear that can brave the elements & stand up to the demands of the action sports industry... especially for the ladies. My professional experience includes Product Development for Beyond Clothing- a military & outdoor technical apparel start-up company in Seattle, WA as well as Snowboard Sales Associate for Evo at their flagship Seattle store. During the slow summer season, I also wrote copy for Evo's website as well as performed video product reviews. Both of these positions gave me valuable industry knowledge in many departments.
