Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I grew up exploring Thrift Stores and Flea Markets, always keeping my eyes open for beautiful and unique clothing. I loved playing dress up and making costumes with the things I found. One of my favorite pieces growing up was a pink suede vest from the 1970s, thrifted from Salvation Army, with big brass buttons that I wore to class in 6th grade. I am lead by that creative impulse and I'm happiest when I'm working on projects and making the things around me beautiful. I always find a way to make the aesthetic choices in my work come alive with soul and beauty. I'm currently based LA where the sun, fashion, music and architecture keep me happy and inspired.
