Fashion is more than a profession.
To me, it's a passion that determines the lens through which I perceive everything around me. As an enthusiastic design professional marinating in the famously inspiring, free spirited California lifestyle I wear many hats - whether I'm spearheading the development of an 'above-the-keyboard' collection or taking surf lessons. (Still learning!)
Ultimately, I aspire to continuously channel new ways of cultivating a bigger, better, bolder hat collection with culturally and socially conscious apparel companies that are not only ethical in their business practices but also diverse, innovative and forward thinking in sustainability.
