PRIVATE LABEL / T-SHIRT GRAPHIC DESIGN WITH FULL PACKAGE PRODUCTION CAPABILITIES

Born and raised in Southern California and living the lifestyle with all that it offers. I have been fortunate to work in an industry and place I truly enjoy.

I have gathered years of experience working with great people and design teams building successful clothing and graphic collections for leading brands and retailers in the industry. I take a thoughtful approach with each and every piece of clothing or graphic I design. My focus has always been to design a quality product that consumers like and will drive sales. As the industry has its ups and downs, I have always enjoyed the process and have fun leading and implementing the team concept.
