I am currently an assistant professor of fashion design and teach tailoring, patternmaking, specialty design, and fashion history. I earned a BS from The Ohio State University in 1987 and a Masters in Design from University of Cincinnati in 2003. Before coming to CCAD in 2012, I was an associate professor of fashion merchandising at the Art Institute of Ohio. I have authored supplemental fashion textbook materials for Prentice Hill and was a contributing author to The Men’s Fashion Reader, A History of Men’s Fashion. Fairchild Publishing, 2008. I have also reviewed work for Laurence King Publishing and have been a freelance bridal designer since 2005.
