Born and raised in Denver Colorado, I never learned to Ski or Snowboard. Instead, I rode horses.

Bliss is a mountain trail and time in my garden


I own and use 7 sewing machines and an antique sock machine.


I’m terrified of snails.


I’ve moonlighted as a construction worker on my own home restoration, a cute little warehouse from the 1940’s.


A clicky Sharpie, and a pad of Stickynotes are my secret weapons.


I’ve carted a box of fabric from my grandma over 6K miles and 2 decades and still haven’t decided what to do with it.



A chronological history and highlights


I Started work in the garment industry at 18, pre college. The man who hired me and honed my sewing and patternmaking skills would later become one of my best friends and mentors. Nate Butler, ran Bloodnickel Industries; where we made build-to-suit, custom, fully armored leather suits from start to finish for professional and novice street bike racers and downhill street luge competitors. Our work cameoed in the 2002 movie Rollerball.

At age 21, I established Twich Ind., a custom shop specializing in costumes and sculptural design in leather and plastics. I collaboratively designed & constructed a range of custom garments for acrobats, local artists and performers.

A few years later I sought a position in CA with Fox Racing / Shift MX and dove back into technical and functional design. Leveraging experience with Bloodnickel, I pioneered the Supermoto class of functional outerwear for the brand with a focus on fit and protection by way of functional design and managed the workflow for a team of 6 pattern makers and sewers in this process
