I was born to a first generation Mexican father and a Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) member mother. After watching my mother make clothing for me, my little sister, and endless dolls and barbies, I learned to sew. My mother loved history and I we researched Henry VIII and I fell in love with costumes. We frequented east coast flea markets most weekends sparking my love of vintage everything! My father loved taking us back to Mexico “glamping”, not in a cool way I might add, but we did get to experience amazing food, culture and clothing that I still love today.
After I graduated from Syracuse University’s Visual and Performing Arts college I moved to New York City and worked as an assistant art director at Saatchi & Saatchi’s McCaffrey & McCall agency, but after 3 years decided to move into the fashion industry and worked for Esprit de Corps and Urban Outfitter's in their New York showrooms. Magazine work followed at Marie Claire and Vanity Fair and then I got lucky and scored a guest photo editor spot at Interview Magazine when a friend left the position. This was a dream after doing my senior thesis on Andy Warhol and they actually let me style shoots while being the photo editor! In the end I decided that styling was what I really wanted to do and I’m so happy I did!
I work locally in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, London and just about anywhere!
