Born in New York and raised in New Jersey, 40 minutes from the city and the shore, I am currently based in San Francisco.  

           Textiles and patternmaking are the driving forces behind my creative approach and they have an innate impact on my design.  Based on the qualities of the fabrics I am using I employ patterns as life sized sketches. My focus is on utilizing quality textiles in a sustainable and versatile way to create products that remain current from season to season, and on thinking about apparel, textiles and production within the context of social and environmental impact.
