A PORTLAND OREGON NATIVE, NOW RESIDING IN NEW YORK CITY.

AFTER ATTENDING THE ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY IN SAN FRANCISCO, I BECAME THE CFDA x KENNETH COLE FOOTWEAR INNOVATION AWARD RECIPIENT AND BEGAN MY JOURNEY IN THE BIG APPLE. AFTER A ONE-YEAR FELLOWSHIP AT KENNETH COLE, I MADE THE SWITCH BACK TO CLOTHING DESIGN AND AM CURRENTLY DESIGNING FOR KATE SPADE NEW YORK.

BEING FROM OREGON, SUSTAINABLE DESIGN PLAYS A LARGE ROLE IN MY AESTHETIC. I AM ALWAYS REPURPOSING THRIFTED GARMENTS AND MODERNIZING THEM. THE FASHION INDUSTRY MUST ADHERE TO NEW NORMS AS SUSTAINABLE INNOVATION IS KEY TO KEEPING THE INDUSTRY RELEVANT.
