I spent a decade in L.A. dressing celebrities for everything from red carpet premieres to international press junkets with clients including Sharon Stone, Chloe Sevigny, Liam Hemsworth and Scott Eastwood. I flew around the world in private jets, having private dinners with the world’s top designers (spaghetti with Sylvia Fendi in Rome was a personal favorite!) While the Hollywood life was exhilarating, I knew when it was time to raise a family, I wanted to be back in San Diego, away from the limelight. Eleven years of marriage and two kids later, I am in settled in the Southern California countryside and still love fashion as much as ever, but have a newfound appreciation for functionality and practicality. Today you can find me producing fashion shows, styling editorials and celebrities, and appearing as an expert on several news networks.
