In my early twenties, I was bright-eyed and adventurous. So, I did what any young woman should do and I traveled. To Uganda, China, Laos, Thailand, Hong Kong, Mexico, and on and on. At one point I found myself on a rickshaw adventure race during a jaunt in India...but that's another story!
Through those years I played and I learned. Naturally, my relationship with the earth and people changed. A deep love emerged with a sense of duty to preserve life, our ancestral knowledge, and the biodiversity that sustains us.
In the winter of 2013 I moved to New York City. I found a tiny walk-up apartment in the East Village and wiggled myself into the fashion industry. I assisted designers, styled photoshoots, produced fashion shows, and even worked for Bono’s fashion house, EDUN. New York was my expansion. The place that showed me the goodness that comes from creative creation.
