2004-Present EHG Design Inc./In 2004 I established EHC Design Inc. (DBA EHG Design Inc.) These twelve years of freelance design work have greatly enriched my design portfolio and artistic perspective. Working for a diverse array of clients with demand for an eclectic variety of product has encouraged me to experiment with fervent ingenuity ways to consistently generate impressive product. Currently designing the second season of Homeschool Outerwear, working with Homeschool and setting creative direction for Bonfire Snowboarding, in the winter of 2015, has been a rejuvenating return to the root of my design initiative, creating Industry Leading products designed specifically for snowboarding.
Fall of 2010-2011 I was contracted by Planet Earth Clothing to rediscover their fundamental design philosophy, and create new fit blocks and garment features. I also assisted with the sourcing and development of ecologically sensitive fabrics and trims.
2012-2014 contracted by Easton to add to their hockey and baseball apparel collections, where I designed uniforms, fleece, jerseys and warm-ups.
I joined the team for a startup company called Bluesmiths, and we began collaborating on crafted waterwear. The Bluesmiths design DNA and entire apparel collection is my contribution to this brand whose products have received design awards.
“At Bluesmiths we build the hardest-working, most versatile waterwear in the world. Based in Maui, Hawaii, we live for real innovation & problem solving, best-in-class fabrics, timeless styling and uncompromising manufacturing standards.”
2013/ Began my work with the lead designer and co-owner of Kitsbow as a contributing designer. This was my first real work in the realm of mountain bike apparel after my RISD exit collection. Mountain biking is my life blood, designing premium products I need for that sport, is the culmination of work, play and life.
“We are about craft. About style. And about function. We believe that anything worth doing is worth doing with the best of what’s available. We believe anything out there can be made better, including our stuff. We’re obsessive and driven. It shows in how we build our bikes, how we ride, and how we make these clothes.” - Kitsbow Philosophy
My first comprehensive architectural / interiors project, “The Healing Space”, started 2013 and spanned two years. As a world traveling Wyoming native, I was hired by Dr. Allen and Virginia Gee to design a building intended to cross pollinate traditional or “western medicine” and “eastern medicine” the healing arts, with a design marrying contemporary and rustic elements in multi functional spaces and healing atmosphere.
