ABOUT ME

I am a designer, I am a researcher and I am a teacher. My goal is to understand problems to find the best possible way to resolve them, and to do this through the effective transmission of information among a team of driven individuals.


I understand the world through the fashion lens: both in the sense of the clothes we choose to live in and in the manner in which we conduct our interaction with them. I believe that understanding our relationship to fashion is crucial in understanding the social constructs of our unprecedented zeitgeist. 


I am currently studying my MSc in Applied Psychology in Fashion and I believe that fashion can be a force for good. I am interested in offering my services to a company that is open to this world view and that I may implement my skills, experience and knowledge to improve the state of fashion for an inclusive and sustainable future.
