I have always had the mindset to go out of boundaries and stand out from the crowd. Using any opportunity available to create, not only through design but through self-expression and as well to make a statement and to send a message. Curious about the world and what it has to offer, I have a passion for learning new things, traveling, and helping others in my community and environment. I enjoy social gatherings that bring people from all over the world together, and to possibly make new friendships and share ideas.
Early in life I discovered that my passion was to be a part of cooperative efforts in the creative design field. Now one of my greatest satisfactions in life derives from being a part of cumulative projects and seeing them through to successful conclusions. Through my education at FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising I have developed a broad skill set and a strong work ethic. I am a quick learner, can work well under pressure, and inspirationally driven.
Through my experience at Amrapur Overseas Inc., I have gained many skill sets such as, designing 8 piece comforter sets from start to finish while communicating with China and evaluating the products construction and quality. I also had the opportunity to travel to New York and use visual communication skills to design showroom layouts for the Home and Textiles Today during market week. As a production coordinator at s\ant furniture, I have had the chance to learn about production of products to a finer, more stricter tune, which can be applied to other industries of design. I achieved technical and communicative traits by creating detailed CAD illustrations of designs that were made for clients. In turn, I assisted with creating our own on private label and collection for s\ant furniture. While working at Design Options, I developed precise color trend boards/palettes using thorough research and detail. We used Pantone color reference codes to create the color palettes, along with precise color matching while assembling the palettes. Because of this I now understand trend cycles specific to color within the apparel industries. I assisted redesigning the company's product with a new and fresh approach, using my graphic design and packaging skills.
I am always looking for opportunities to learn more, and towards becoming a more valuable employee. I want to play an important role in a company’s success, and grow within that company if given the opportunity.
