Functional. Sustainable. Utilitarian. Simple. Innovative.
I am enamored by nature's beauty and strive to maintain it by living and promoting a simplistic lifestyle which is reflected in my designs.
My focus is on active and outerwear apparel with a special interest in active- and outer-wear. After my graduation in May 2017, I moved to New England to begin an internship with New Balance Athletics as the Textile Design Intern. After a nine month internship, I was hired on full-time as a Materials Designer I, starting on the Innovation team and recently transitioning onto our Inline Materials team.
My career goal is to be assisting sustainable-minded and giving-centered companies, promoting consumer change through apparel or product design. As Ghandi once said, "If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change." One step at a time. It only takes one follower to create a movement.
I am a graduate of Kent State University with a bachelor of arts in fashion design and double minors in textiles and entrepreneurship.
I am currently the Materials Designer I with the Apparel Inline Materials team at New Balance Athletics.
I have prior experience interning with New Balance as the Textile Design intern; with Viajiyu, as the company's first Footwear Design intern; and with Nesh NYC, a contemporary active apparel lifestyle brand, as the Design and Operations intern.
