RESUME

 
Professional ​
info​​

I have worked in apparel, and especially action sports, for the last 10 years.  I have worked on the product management, retail, and marketing sides of the business over that period.

Throughout my career I have had opportunities to learn and refine my skill set as a graphic designer as well.  I have been able to use that skill set at each of my employers as well as on a freelance level.  My passion for design drives every facet of my life outside of the workplace to everything that I do.
