I took orders, cooked, served, cleared tables and did dishes at a local fried chicken joint in my hometown in upstate New York. As the Executive Creative Director, Global Marketing at Tiffany & Co., I am responsible for leading the expression of the brand to our customers in all Marketing media. I have been drawing since I could pick up a crayon. When I was in college, majoring in Mathematics, I took a sabbatical to spend the semester in Florence, Italy to study Fine Art. Returning to upstate New York, I knew that I wouldn't continue to graduate school for math. I enrolled at Pratt for a Master's degree in Design, moved to Brooklyn, and here I am. I am inspired by almost everything -- a love of art, photography, reading, my city, other cities and nature. I am inspired by all kinds of women every day. I love couture fashion and street fashion. I'm most inspired by love, of my family, my friends, and my overflowing life. My children. I am not sure I deserve any credit, but watching them turn into the amazing people they are has brought unparalleled joy.
