about

It all started on a visual merchandising internship with a fashion brand. It was fascinating, and I was hooked. Looking back, I have always enjoyed the process of planning, designing, and executing projects based on an initial idea.

I have worked in various positions throughout my career, completing countless projects, which has provided me with a broad skill-set and years of industry experience.

As the Project Director of Architecture and Store Design at LACOSTE, I developed and implemented process changes that created transparency into the project lifecycle, improved communication, decreased schedule time, and lowered costs, which allowed us to open projects on time and under budget. These processes helped me overcome the challenges of 2020/21 brought about by COVID, and I continued to open projects on time and within budget.

Ganter Interior is one of the world’s leading shopfitting and fit-out companies. I was responsible for a team of project managers and technical designers. From the initial concept, we managed the process to final execution. I enjoyed collaborating with brands, designers, architects, and general contractors from the supplier side of the business to help find solutions.

Before this, I spent over 17 years at HUGO BOSS. I was responsible for visual merchandising, store planning, real estate, and construction throughout my tenure. During this time, I developed strategies and processes which allowed us to execute hundreds of projects in multiple business channels worth millions of dollars.
