Since working at Black Diamond I have had the opportunity to design outerwear jackets and pants, sports wear and packs. I am the lead designer in charge of coloring each new season of apparel, creating logo wear and accessories; and I design and develop new trims and hardware for apparel. When I was hired at BD I started out sewing outerwear blocks so we could improve our fit through-out our line. I quickly moved from sewing blocks to sewing mockups to test new ideas and send constructions to our factories. From there I moved to designing apparel and in the last month to head designer in the apparel category.
