My introduction into the professional workplace in Product Marketing allowed me to work across many categories and functions. This firsthand experience of working behind the curtains at an international sportswear brand gave visibility of the entire product creation process from initial concept to its ultimate product launch. As a result, I gained best practices in collaboration, adaptability, organization, and communication. After some time building innovative and creative trend road maps for the Action Sports business unit as a Global PLM, it became apparent that my sincere passion is in the arts and design community. These days I’m continuing to sharpen my design tools by experimenting with varying media and processes. I believe my diverse education and prior employment provide a spectrum of differing capabilities to analyze, forecast, and effectively execute against complex design projects. Expanding my skillsets and increasing my competency in design will always be paramount as I believe there’s always something new to learn. Whether it’s product, brand, print, or web design, I’m down!
