  • Evolution fascinates me – conditioning of the human form, the progression of mechanics, and the transformation of culture and music.  Body physics merged with futurism are my influences, but my endpoint always arrives at the question – how can clothing evolve?

    After designing at Alexander McQueen and Halston, I started Balsa.NYC, with my business partner Tash Shore, to explore new approaches to cut, tailoring and material.  My belief in design is that movement and power is sexy.
