I confess, I am a reality tv junkie.  


if i could live anywhere in the world it would be australia. they are seriously chic down under.


i totally believe in the cliche that "everything happens for a reason"


Palm trees make me happy, like really happy


I’m Midwest grown, but California made. I recently married my surfing loving husband in paradise of 2015 and we have planted our roots in Costa Mesa, CA. For over a decade I worked in the world of high heels and ‘cerulean blue’, but not too many devil’s in Prada crossed my path.  My tenure of experience lead me to many roles where I represented, managed, trained, and educated for contemporary and luxury brands like Theory, Elie Tahari, DVF and Dior

Some would think living bi-coastal traveling from New York to Pairs soaking up all the couture glamour would check that box, but my dreams are just being discovered.

I’ve always been a creative extrovert at heart and loved finding details in the world that surrounds me. My ambitious appetite craves to produce unique eye candy for others to enjoy while my goal is to spark imagination at any age.
