she/her

Alongside running my workshop, I am currently director of design for Brooklyn-based menswear brand Outlier, and have previously worked in the design studios of Maria Cornejo, Isaac Mizrahi, Camilla Staerk and Susan Cianciolo.

Manifesto

Working under the manifesto of “QUEER ENTREPRENEURSHIP AS A MEANS OF DEFENSE,” I aim to celebrate, honor, and indulge queer identity by prioritizing the collective capital of LGBTQ+ people, rather than the external forces that seek to capitalize on them. I view queerness, in the words of L.A. Kauffman, as “more of a posture of opposition than a simple statement about sexuality,” and I am constantly interested in de-centering static and stable conceptions of business structures, particularly how queer principles can exist at the core of businesses operating within the apparel industry.
