I am a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and left home to live in various cities and countries around the world. Growing up in Pittsburgh, I spent a lot of my time sketching designs and modeling in fashion shows. I knew early on in my childhood that this was the career path I wanted to take.
I have a BA in Design and Marketing from The American Intercontinental University in Los Angeles California, and an AA in Merchandising from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh.
I have always prided myself on my sense of style and have always wanted to find a way to convey my sense of style to others. Throughout my life so far, my love for fashion has been one thing that people have come to know me for.
Three words that describe me as a designer are: I would have to say the three words that best describe me as a designer would be the following: Trendy, classic, and sassy.
What motivates you as a designer? There are several things that motivate me one things is my desire to be happy with the life given to me and designing clothing is one aspect that makes me happy in my life.
The second thing would be the support of my family, I couldn’t imagine getting this far without the support of the ones that love me and I love also. One final thing that motivates me is my desire to see women dress as women, I miss the days of ladies dressing to the nines to meet for lunch. I miss going out shopping and seeing ladies enjoying being dressed and embracing their beauty.
Who are your favorite designers? My favorite designers are Diane Von Furstenberg, Tori Burch, Edith Head
I love Goodwill because… of all the wonderful opportunities they offer to the community and also for all of the great finds available there. I can’t think of a time that I shopped at a goodwill and didn’t have a pleasant experience and also find something great there.
