Born in the United States, I spent extended periods of time in Austria, France and Germany throughout my childhood. Entranced by the architecture, art, beauty, fashion, film and interior design of these countries, I knew that when I grew up, I wanted to pursue a career in design.
I once heard my Grandmother quote Mies van der Rohe's, “God is in the details” and I immediately realized how much this statement resonated with me. As a result, I kept my eyes open and I always keep looking around. Therefore, my design motto is, “You never know what or where you will find inspiration.”
My continual pursuit of finding what is new and currently trending is not just a passion but, a core part of who I am. I love discovering a “new season” whether it’s in fashion, beauty or interior design. I am always excited to see what is next and what inspires other designers.
I spent 11 years as Creative Director, Global Fragrances at Interparfums USA in New York City. 2006 — 2017
I have a Masters Degree in Packaging Design from the Academy of Art University San Francisco, California.
