PASSION MEETS .

My life has always been dedicated to exploring...

I was born on the South side of Chicago, but began exploring the world early through music. Through practice, patience and hard work, I traveled the U.S. and Europe while performing violin. My eyes were forever opened.

Exploring new places, cultures and food became part of the fabric of my being. Later in life, this diverse exposure to fashion and food became my biggest asset in interior and restaurant design.

As I traveled, I experienced a profound transformation in confidence and self awareness. I also saw a huge need. I wanted other kids, especially those from troubled neighborhoods, to feel the same empowerment.

A spark was lit to obtain a Masters degree in education and a career in giving back. That spark turned into a fire when I designed my first after school program. This eventually led to my passion project, Peepscope.

With the birth of my daughter Capri, most of my time is spent helping her to explore the world with my longtime love, Jerry. And although I’ve traded in my dry-clean only clothes for easy to wash cotton, I’m again finding myself on fire seeing the world through her eyes.

Please feel free to peruse through a few of my favorite projects here, and then head on over to The Spotted Cloth to see the latest as Capri, Jerry and I explore life in LA.
