Profile

I am a graduate of Drexel University with a Bachelor of Science Degree from the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Art and Design. I’m a passionate, well-rounded, and detail-oriented designer with thorough knowledge of fabrications, illustrations, sewing techniques, embroidery, and trim.
I’ve fully designed custom looks for high-profile clients for private events, as well as work in corporate settings, accompanied with years of experience creating hand sketches and digital flats. I have experience fitting on live models, speccing garments, grading patterns, and putting prints into repeat. I feel that I am fully skilled in executing any task set before me and am comfortable handling multiple projects at once.
