Having directed small start-ups to major retailes  PD&D departments, I have presented lines to executive management and buyers, recruited talent, source,  negotiated costs and established long lasting contacts with creative sources and manufacturing.

With an adaptive design background — encompassing soft-lines for women, men, kids, accessories (hats, gloves, belts, socks, etc.), packaging (hang tags, header cards, stickers, hangers, etc.), graphics (embroideries, screen-prints, logos, textiles, etc.) and technical design (construction, specs – POMs & grading) , I am capable of interpreting trends from various product categories and translating them into non-conventional areas — safety mask hoodie to pet product.

Through this insight, I have been instrumental in developing brands, gaining brand loylaty, increasing sales and greatly improving P&L for the companies I have worked for.

With extensive knowledge in PLM and many successful years working as an adaptive PD&D designer for some of the largest brands/companies in the apparel industry   — creatively and technically managing/designing  soft-goods and hard-goods — I would be privileged to consult and/or design and develop product for you / your company.

"Creativity abounds — Design is inherent!"
