It wasn't "cool" to blog when I was 17.
That's where I started, a little ol' blog became an outlet for me to write, post my photos, tell style stories, post inspiration and connect. Speed through a degree in apparel design and merchandising, hustling my way through working any relevant job I could take, I got a 3 month mentorship from one of the most talented pattern makers I've ever met at Rachel Comey, won some awards for "most original" and "best technique" in my designs. Decided to work a year as a writer in Marketing, landed a product photography and digital marketing position at a startup in PDX, worked my into a corporate brand content position, and now... I'm here.
Still creating, but it's cool. Really dang cool.
