About Me

I am an independent Fashion Designer from Austin, Texas.  I was raised in Atlanta, GA and started designing clothes at the age of 15.  My mother is a seamstress, and would work with me to start creating my own designs in high school.  I then attended Bauder Collage in Atlanta and was schooled the technicalities of the fashion industry.  After some time in college in Georgia, I moved to Austin and then traveled to the West Coast.  I attended the local community college, Monterey Peninsula College, and took some patterns and alterations classes. I have produced fashion shows in Georgia, California, and Austin, Texas.

I work toward creating classy attire for men and women, and have done a great deal of costume/custom piece work.

I prefer to create based on my mood of the time, the season, or the colors and patterns that have inspired me along my life. I tend to treat my creations like pieces of artwork, each unique and stand alone. I would say that the defining characteristic of my work is "pragmatism". Each piece is designed to suit the basic needs of the wearer without being cumbersome, but is also stylish at the same time. I challenge myself to design work to be synonymous with style, simplicity, and uniqueness.

I was the official fashion designer for the massiveblack.com and conceptart.org art community.  Below is a SXSW event we produced together in 2009:

Imaginations! SXSW Spring '09 Fashion Show (Sponsored by massiveblack.com, conceptart.org, and SXSW):

I am a large supporter for local artistry, and spend a great deal of time working with others in the creative industry.  I have done a lot of promotion and work to support local companies and artists.
