“I SOLVE PROBLEMS THROUGH DEVELOPMENT”
After graduating from FIDM in San Francisco with an apparel design degree, Jeff headed east to NYC and began his career in design and product development. Under the mentorship of industry leaders at Theory, Bespoken and Ralph Lauren he specialized in menswear with a strong focus on construction and fit.
During his time designing for Bespoken they were awarded the 'Best New Menswear Designers in America’ by GQ Magazine and were given the opportunity to design a capsule collection for GAP, which sold out online and in nearly 200 locations internationally within 3 days of release.
Inspired by thoughtful detail and his love for creative problem solving, Jeff found new passion for bringing apparel products to life through the development process. In his most recent role with Stars Design Group, Jeff led the domestic + international Product Development and Technical Design teams to be true architects, building product from 3D CAD’s to functional and wearable garments.
Over the past decade, Jeff has created contemporary and lifestyle products within both B2B and B2C retail models, as well as omnichannel retail strategies. Most recently, he has found inspiration in sustainable fashion and is a proponent for honest transparency within the apparel industry.
On his free time Jeff can sometimes be found playing blues guitar and other times you can find him solving all types of puzzles, the 12-Sided Rubiks being one of his favorites. But, usually he can be found tinkering with or riding one of his bicycles, generally for a longer distance than most would find necessary.
