I grew up in Orange County, California with interests in wellness and outdoor activities from skateboarding, surfing, biking, and snowboarding to name a few. The SoCal lifestyle has influenced my design aesthetic. I am a seasoned designer with experience in the process and challenges of product management. Having owned and operated my own start up clothing company, Max & Bean I understand the importance of developing relationships with manufacturers and vendors to form a mutually profitable business. My design background is an advantage to maintaining design’s overall vision throughout the product development process. My experience in the girls market has allowed me to gain extensive knowledge in all fabric and trim categories.
