I have been working within the fashion industry for almost ten years. I have a BFA from Cooper Union where my emphasis was in painting and drawing. I began my training in fashion with hands on experience - interning for many years with Bruce and sub sequentially working freelance for Gap, American Apparel, Polo, JCrew, etc. - where I specialized in hand sketching, Illustrator specs and hand embroidery - sample finishing.
For the last two years I have gained proficiency in the 3-Dimensional construction of Hardware for handbags as a Design Assistant at Coach Inc.
