design

I am actively involved in several sports, and live in the ultimate environment for product testing.  With first hand understanding of the "function" needed for active clothing, my ability to design technical, functional apparel is greatly enhanced.  My aesthetic sense and visual design background provide the clothing with sleek, visual appeal.

                          

...I encourage outside input ... I believe that successful design comes from the collaboration of several ideas.


development

Product development is taking all the "drawings" and story boards and collaboration of "idea's" into a line that has all the required price points, and varied visual details.  Development also means putting everything into spec sheets, organizing time lines and working with factories. Basically getting the "concepts" into action.
