BACK AND FORTH FROM THE EAST COAST TO THE MIDWEST TO ISOLATE AND CREATE.

 

Fashion Design & 3D 

In our digital age, I have made it my priority to develop my traditional design skills and combine them with innovative and industry relevant technology. Softwares such as CLO3D, Kaledo, Keyshot and Cinema 4D enable me to communicate my ideas seamlessly. I can convert them into patterns that I can construct as real garments or render them into realistic digital scenes or animations.

Footwear Design

Last summer, I had the opportunity to hand-make and design footwear in Amsterdam with Peterson + Stoop. Conceptualizing, rendering and prototyping in fashion design has carried over into more than just apparel. I have been developing my skills in hand and digital sketching, paper prototyping, 3D modeling and hand making footwear. 

Product Development 

My passion lies within developing concepts and bringing them to life. I love seeing and designing the whole process from start to finish, identifying the technical details and stitching together the prototype. Researching and understanding the materials, construction and becoming a more effective designer is my goal. I utilize a combination of traditional design and craft skills alongside new and innovative technology for multidimensional visualization.

Animations & Art

I truly love being an artist, designer and maker. To sew, draw, build and create. Before I was a designer, I loved to draw and create purely for the emotion that it brought me. I realized that this passion for creating is what could make me an effective designer for our future. Here, I have created animations, digital illustrations and other artworks. Learning and working across different mediums and softwares allows me to express concepts and market my designs in unique ways.
