When Troy was seven years old his parents gave him a sewing machine and a Computer; it all started there.
Troy’s studies carried him from computer sciences in the Rocky Mountains to Fashion Design in New York City. It was from there the production centers of Europe entered his worldview. Troy started studying Italian and studying abroad.
Upon graduating he went back to Florence to be close to the design and production of clothing and design objects designing collections for Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, Jean Paul Gaultier and Emilio Cavallini. Italy has expanded Troy’s design in a multitude of materials/techniques such as Knitwear, Denim, Leather, Tailored suitings, fine dresses and technical fibers.
In a brief period Troy was exposed to a complete world of Fibers, Textiles, Yarns, Knits, Wovens, Bonded, Hide and Fur. This passion led Troy back into University when he was asked by the Director of Pitti Imagine to teach and research Digital Modeling for Fashion Design at the IUAV University of Venice.
