I am a curious, systems-oriented Designer, Educator & Consultant focused on impact driven results
I've taught Sustainable Design at Parsons School of Design in NYC, consult with the private and non-profit sectors to build and implement sustainable strategies for change. Through my art practice of painting, I am exploring the system of post-consumer waste in textiles.
Designing clothing has been my dream since I began sewing at age 9. I've always taken a process-oriented approach to design because I believe it makes a difference in the integrity of the products designed.
