I've always enjoyed creating, especially with a tactile medium. In another life, I might be a potter. Fashion has had a special place in my heart, even as a young girl. My mom taught me to sew, and I was always reimagining off-the-rack clothing. While in college, I ventured into sewing from patterns and then realized I could reimagine those, too – and off I went making my own patterns. After graduating, I decided to attend design school in San Francisco and learn the rules so I could break them.
