In addition to being a costume/set designer and stylist, I am the Founder and Chief Creative Officer of RISEN From The Thread, a creative firm that focuses on the intersection of technology, material science, and the human body.
RISEN DIVISION is dedicated to continuing the art and future of the jumpsuit for the today’s woman.
“IN JUMPSUITS WE TRUST”
I wanted to expand of my base of theatrical story-telling and apply my technical expertise in sensors, electronics, and material science to develop and create wearable product design, multi-media art installations and UX Design. The work of Risen blends technology in unique ways to create unexpected stories, products, and experiences.
