A 20 year veteran in the apparel industry, I have been self-employed since November 2002, my primary focus has been on creating embroidery designs. Working with embroidery specific software, I create embroidery designs for both the commercial and home embroidery market. While an expert in the embroidery industry, I have had experience
with numerous other graphic arts applications in my career. These include creating business cards, greeting cards, product packaging, print advertising, screen printed designs, informational booklets,
and various other desktop publishing projects.
I have attended Bobbin,ISS, and Stitches University Conferences in Atlanta, GA, and Tampa, FL.
I have received specialized training for WINgs, Pulse, Stitchitizer, and Pantograms digitizing systems.
As an embroidery digitizer, I have excelled in creating both efficient and attractive embroidery designs. My focus on every embroidery design has always been to create a high quality design that will impress both the customer and the machine operator. I have digitized thousands of designs over my 18 year career in embroidery. Some of my most noteworthy accomplishments are as follows:
