I thrive at that interface of science and art where hypotheses and dreams converge. I design products with circular lifecycles because I want to do right by our incredible planet and its awesome people. Let's get ourselves out of this climate change pickle and build a future we want to live in.

I founded fashion-tech startup unspun with an amazing team in order to solve big, sticky problems in the fashion industry. unspun is building an inclusive and sustainable fashion industry through custom-fit, on-demand manufacturing (read: body scan jeans made with 3D weaving robotics), and has been recognized as a Best Invention by TIME Magazine, Best of What's New winner by Popular Science, and Global Change Award winner by H&M Foundation. Before unspun, I developed products in the outdoor apparel industry, instructed at a machine shop, designed robot-human soft good interfaces, and taught product design as an Assistant Professor at the University of Oregon. Throughout my career, I've been fascinated by nature's obvious yet overlooked knack for circular manufacturing, and hope that we can emulate it. I serve as a National Science Foundation SBIR proposal reviewer and received a BS in Fiber Science & Apparel Design from Cornell and an MFA in Design from Stanford.
