I am a visual artist, designer, and writer focused on sustainable development. I have a BFA in furniture design (SCAD 2000) and I've just completed my MS degree at the College of Textiles at NCSU. Currently I'm developing a compliance management solution for the global garment industry that will improve labor practices as well as contribute to sustainable development. I'm also managing an international aid/ethical fashion project involving the cottage sewing industry in Jaipur, India. Addressing the challenges of globalization by enabling industry and consumers to improve impact is my priority; cultivating meaningful material culture and exploring sustainable beauty is a deep pleasure. Thank you for visiting; I'd love to hear from you.
