I'm an Apparel Designer interested in focusing on theatrical costume design and sustainability in the apparel and textile industries. Awareness of the impact I am having on the environment is an important value that I hold (e.g. textile manufacturing waste, marker waste from cutting, durability of product and sustainability of "made local"). When I'm not sewing I am working on starting my small business INKA Clothing Co. In the little time that I have outside of work and school you can find me reading, sewing, drawing, cooking and riding my bicycle.

To the right is a photo of my design for the Women's blouse project in Construction class, winter 2011. Please see my Flickr site for more exmaples of my work.
