Kevin R. Sheffield





As the Design Technology Manager for a major apparel design company I am responsible for managing all global technology related to apparel and textile design that aids in the product development process. This was initiated by working in the industry as a designer/ technical designer and realizing the need to accept what technology can add to the overall design process. I began with one class in Adobe Illustrator and that seed has grown into a craving to streamline the process of design through the use of technology. I have taught at 24 Seven in Soho NY for the past 10 years and also spoke as a professional lecturer at Marist College in Poughkeepsie NY, for the past 5 years as part of their Fashion Curriculum. I am now based in Los Angeles, CA searching for my next endeavor.
