I am a Handbags & Accessories Designer, who has designed for Coach, MCM, Levi’s, Pottery Barn, & emerging brands.  I describe my design sensibility as Architectural Lines meet Modern Elegance.  My use of subtle, but interesting shapes gives my designs unisex appeal.  My focus is on creating innovative designs that enhance people’s lives.

With extensive commercial luxury experience (Coach & MCM), I can drive all facets of the seasonal design strategy and development process from trend research and mood board presentation to the realization of vision through concept to factory visits and final delivery. Working in-house or as a freelancer, I excel at working well with the cross functional team to create original, trend-appropriate design concepts that stay true to the brand’s DNA and meet the needs of the consumer.  Having worked as a designer and as a product engineer, I have a uniquely strong understanding of construction, material, pattern making, and manufacturing which allows me to create aesthetically distinct and highly functional products.
