What’s your favorite Pantone color?801C. We did a trend report on a similar color for Spring & Summer. Plus it doesn’t hurt that it’s the blue we use in our branding!
Favorite of the moment trendy t-shirt style? Not the ringer… my favorite is acid wash. The girls in the office love the ringer right now, I just can’t go back to that trend personally!
Favorite recent product that AMB3R produced? Seacoast appliqué hoodie & joggers. I love showing our clients that they can have branded apparel without putting a billboard on a t-shirt that most customers won’t wear again. An appliqué hoodie and joggers are timeless pieces their customers will wear for years.
What’s your favorite Denver restaurant?Euclid Hall. Not only do I love their food, but we’ve wanted to work with them for years. Their merchandise is pretty standard, but we know we could help them increase sales with our touch!
Favorite ice cream flavor?Little Man Ice Cream - Salted Maple Chocolate Dipped Bacon ice cream. They had this 3 years ago as a special with Tender Belly Bacon and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it sense.
What item do you have to have at your desk? My desk is currently an organized mess of espresso cups, post it notes, patch samples and pantone books.
Patches or Pins? Both! We have been developing a patch & pin combo with a custom backer card. The backer cards are a great place for extra branding and keep these small items organized.)
Dream client? The one who gives me ample time to produce. 😃 But really, the opportunity to work with American Red Cross would be great; philanthropy is very important to me so I think we would be a good fit.

How did you first get into apparel and design? I first got into apparel and design through my brother who worked at an action sports apparel brand called Truth Soul Armour. I also spent ten years managing merchandise on tour with major label bands.
What are you hobbies outside of AMB3R? Work! It never really stops. When I do get time to myself I enjoy Netflix foodie shows, reading, and spending time with my wife and 1 year old, Ezra.
What do you find challenging about your role in AMB3R? Not being able to focus on 1 area but having to manage all parts of the company. Luckily, the more we grow, the more I get to focus on the areas I love!
