TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF

I was born in New York, raised in Miami, and have lived in LA for over 7 years. I received a BS in Fashion Marketing and Management from the Art Institute. My curiosity on societies' decision-processes, love for aesthetics, and the marketing tools I have learned, has allowed me to help create visions and dreams into profitable realities. From daily operations and management to image branding and forecasting, I can't get enough of it.

 

HOW DO YOU LIGHTEN YOUR IMPACT ON THE EARTH IN YOUR DAY-TO-DAY LIFE? 

Before I started at Simon+Krull, I was a little ignorant when it came to being green. After diving into the eco-fashion business, I have learned so much; I alone can do to help the earth we live in. From recycling and reusable grocery bags to researching companies for metal scraps and vegetable dyes, the amount of tools in your personal and work life you can use to help our world is infinite! I know that I can't change the effects on the earth by myself, so I will always be researching new ways to make our company greener. My personal mission for Simon+Krull is to have a social impact for the fashion world.

 

 
WHAT'S CURRENTLY INSPIRING YOU THESE DAYS?
 
I think there is beauty in everything. I take inspiration from nature, misadventures, trends, and imperfections.  After all, what is fashion except an artistic analysis of the bounties of the world around you?
 

 

WHY DO YOU THINK S+K IS A GOOD FIT FOR YOU?

JNB jewelry designer, Jackie Brown, told me I had to meet her friend Kendra and see if I could help with Simon+Krull. After listening to Kendra’s dreams for S+K, I was truly inspired. I place extreme value on presentation and being unique, exclusive and inspirational. Our SK Family brings all of that to the table and more.

People are in for quite the treat.
