Nicknames?

Domo, I earned in college, because I was obsessed with Japanese art; Domino Brown Sugar a close friend gave me, because I'm sweet, of course. ;-)

When did you realize you had designer potential?

I was a total DIY punk in high school. When I started getting lots of compliments and requests, I realized, "Hmm there may be something there."

Strengths as a designer?

I am chock-full of innovation and creativity.

Weaknesses as a designer?

I have lots of ideas, which means I have a tendency to jump from concept to concept, but in fashion, when is multitasking ever a bad thing?

What are your influences?

Minimalism, the street culture in any city, music, modern art, graphic novels.

What's playing on your iPod when you're designing?

Sneakerpimps, "Empire of the Sun," Santigold, Matt and Kim, Alt J.

A collection of quilted cycling jackets and coats I did for my senior thesis.
