I am a freelance apparel designer, costumer and tailor. I also teach sewing and design skills to others. My goal is to inspire and mentor people who are ready to take their sewing and design knowledge to the next level. I have over 15 years of experience designing and running my own fashion lines. I currently sell my designs at Made Here PDX and Queen Bee. I have worked for Nike, Adidas, Columbia Sportswear, Portlandia, Big Freedia, Mercury Fashion Show, Northwest Dance Project and the Oregon Ballet Theatre. My experience includes: Apparel design, tailoring for global sportswear apparel campaigns, photo styling, textile design, costume design + wardrobe. 

It brings me so much joy to guide others on this journey of fashion and sewing. Remaining open to opportunities and adapting with change are key elements of doing what I do. I am grateful for this amazing creative career and thankful for all of the help and guidance I've received along the way. Reach out and let me know how you'd like to work together.
