Experience is value.
I offer product design and development to small companies and global brands to support existing lines or bring new ones to market. I have a strong aptitude for working independently and with teams. Behind the scenes of polished product I have 8 years and 25 seasons worth of experience developing my skills in this industry.
I am committed to brand-focused design and innovation, building strong team relationships, clear communication, and leading with a creative mind.
Lululemon was my training ground for 6 years where I learned the ins and outs of creating product and how to respond to a face-paced evolving brand during the transition from grassroots to international recognition. I have learned invaluable technical skills and manufacturing processes from factories in North America, Israel, Sri Lanka, Colombia, Taiwan, and the Philippines.
I hold an industrial design degree from Emily Carr University of Art & Design and studied briefly at the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands.
