Lindsay has been drawing and writing since the age of four. As a spelling bee champion and honors English student, she's never relinquished her first passion, writing. Spending the first eighteen years of her life in Kansas City, she moved to Los Angeles to study fashion design, which led her to a lucrative career in graphic design. She spent a couple of years in New York City honing her skills within the costume jewelry industry before returning to LA.

She currently works full time as an Art Director for apparel and accessories, focusing primarily on licensed Disney product. She is a grammatical junky who recently completed a certificate in a linguistics for beginners course as all things language continue to fascinate her. She'll be the first to claim her life experiences and travels have greatly contributed to her innate writing skills and her attraction to all things design.

Lindsay is currently flexing her interior design passion while building a school bus conversion into a tiny home on wheels. She always said it was hard to choose between studying fashion and interior when she was young and now she gets to experience the best of both worlds as this project is a complete DIY.

Lindsay understands best printing practices and what it takes to implement an idea into a prototype having worked in production, sales, marketing, and now leadership. She readily identifies trends and translates them into advantageous ideas for a company's needs. Expertly skilled in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, she can do anything from mock up your merchandised store layout to create an eye-catching, production friendly graphic. She can also create your lookbook or company presentation utilizing Adobe InDesign's interactive design features.

She is well versed in all apparel categories from infant to adult as well as men, women, and unisex. She understands how to communicate with factories and managed the pre-production department for two of the most successful Disney apparel vendors. Lindsay always says the most rewarding part of her sixteen plus years of experience in design has been leading and mentoring other talent.
