I am the founder and CEO of Livsn Designs. Livsn creates durable, versatile clothing for people who value experiences over stuff - with the ultimate goal of decreasing the amount of clothing produced in the world. I am passionate and dedicated to values of sustainability and conscious capitalism. I truly believe business success and social progress go hand in hand - and I have built Livsn on these ideals from day one.
I have lived most of my life in Fayetteville, AR, where I grew up exploring the creeks, rivers, and hollows of the Ozark Mountains. While I dabble in many outdoor pursuits, these days I am mainly focused on mountain biking, canoeing, and overland travel.
I previously worked at Fayettechill Mountain Company. Over the years, I learned every moving part of building an apparel brand, made nearly every mistake in the process, and eventually became CEO of the company. I developed an eye for good apparel design, the shrewdness to navigate the supply chain, and the confidence to be an empathetic leader.
