Interests & GroupsEdit
- I live an active lifestyle with an interest in Yoga
- Skiing and motorcycles. I believe the defining criteria of apparel and accessory design is “End Use and Functionality” & style. I have often been tasked with training and mentoring others and endeavor to build solid teams in the workplace. I want to work for a company whose culture has strong ties to the community with an appreciation for service. I have a strong interest in sustainability and exploring new ways to achieve balance in the workplace and community. In addition to my professional life I love Fine Art & Photography. I'm a Artist and currently the Director and Curator at Cock Gallery Portland
- a fine art gallery whose mission it is to showcase provocative works by professional artist that might not otherwise be seen due to content or commercial value.
- Cycling & skiing
