Hi, I’m Leslie Cumming, Principal Consultant and Independent Designer.
Never afraid to make a statement – or so I’ve been told – I have a welcoming personality and a discerning eye for strategy, story, execution and creativity.
I have a breadth of experience – equally – in the technology, yarn and the apparel markets. I’ve worked in-house, for agencies and as an independent consulted for independent creatives, leading yarn manufacturers to Top 100 technology companies.
My career has spanned growth startups, successful global companies and a few implosions. My love of cross-cultural perspectives evolved organically as my career path presented opportunities to live and work throughout Europe and Asia. I live in Portland, Oregon and divide my time among family and friends, training for the next triathlon, working as a marketing and communication consultant for small to mid-size companies and building an independent pattern company for knitwear and cut and sew knits.
My journal chronicles my love of creating, writing and living a joyful, sometimes messy, balanced and authentic life. My Through the Lens © photo series is a weekly snapshot of my love of life and the outdoors. They capture where I am and what I see. Some fun facts? I am a twin; I love to read, am a licensed aesthetician and a master hand knitwear designer.
