I have been working in the surf industry for the past 19 years.
The past year 8years I have been self-employed in the launch of 2 online based, swimwear brands.
Prior to I was employed by an international company based in Sydney, which also had me based in their offices in Orange County & Downtown LA. Also working for that company, I was based in a production role in Shanghai, China.
After experiencing the culture of global fashion, I had been inspired to expand my portfolio globally.
My experience also includes assisting in the design, patternmaking, fitting & production of high-end swimwear with a recognised Australian label JETS Swimwear based in Sydney.
I have had many years experience in dealing with manufactures based in China & Hong Kong, with a number of trips living & working in Asia to follow-up the production of garments.
I am experienced in all facets of the fashion industry, from working with retail buyers & merchandisers, to producing garments locally & off-shore.
Originally trained as a fine artist, I have studied life drawing & illustration but more recently have been computer generating, repeat & placement prints, styles & garments from swimwear, boardshorts, tshirts, woven garments & denim.
