Who am I? Funny you should ask.

I am a designer, art director, friend, mentor, daughter, sister, nut job, romantic, dancer, cheerleader, brand specialist, teacher, mother, wife, nerd, type lover, vintage collector, clothes horder, wanna-be time traveler, dreamer, doer, decorator, stubborn Italian, creative guru, hell-I’m an artist and a coffee snob.
