More Information

Most recently I as a designer of In-Store Marketing and POP displays for a large company in their Dallas office, my focus was to help brands and retailers to capture consumer attention and provide a path to purchase.

I was the Creative Director of Apparel & Accessories for a Texas-centric outdoor lifestyle brand where I was the design department responsible for all development and production. This included design of garments, bags and caps as well as packaging and labelling.

I was Creative Director of the Men's Sleepwear and Underwear division within a Merchandising company in Dallas, TX. In that time I moved from Senior Artist into Category Manager/Creative Director, and my design sensibilities touch every aspect of the products...garments, prints, packaging and trim all wear my look. We grew our business from a few accounts to representation in all tiers of retail, including all door rollouts at Hot Topic, Spencer's Gifts, Target and WalMart.

I was trained as a Graphic Designer, and was lured into Apparel Product Development & Design. Over the last 20 years I have developed apparel collections, designed line catalogs and just about everything in between. I love the relentless schedule and competitive nature of the Apparel Industry.

I have been responsible for multiple categories of Graphic Tee programs for Houston, Texas based Academy Sports & Outdoors. These programs included fashion based and event based screens for Men, Missy and Girls.

I was brought in to help develop and launch an eco-friendly line of sportswear and Medical Scrubs with Greenology USA, LLC. My contributions were in the research and development of garment designs, graphic elements and trim kits.

My client roster includes VF Corp, JC Penney, Academy Sports & Outdoors, Coldwater Creek, DIFFA Dallas and dnh Do No Harm Medical Scrubs.
