I am a self taught artist and inventor. I sew, I paint and I make wearable technology. I have always sewn, I first learned the art of when I was 7 years old. It is a tradition in my family. Over the past fifteen years of I have made clothing for private fashion labels and costumes for Broadway and Disney shows. I also have worked as a creative consultant in technology and media.
