Pursuing my passion for the style aesthetic and my intrinsic knack for trends, I received my degrees from FIDM LA and LIM NYC (dashing my parent's hopes of me becoming a doctor - I am Asian after all.)
Since then, I've been part of the buying teams for fashion institutions Bergdorf Goodman, Stuart Weitzman, Club Monaco, and now, Marc Jacobs. Outside of my pantone colored world, I enjoy roughhousing with Hannah (our English Bulldog), trying new coffee shops, and (the more than occasional) donuts.
I was born in Los Angeles and raised about an hour east in Victorville, California. It was in Southern California where I developed and refined my artistic eye, pursuing my career in the visual arts.
I made the move to New York in 2008 to be with Geleen and further my career. This was the best decision I've ever made. Since then I've worked with some pretty great agencies, got to design for some big clients, and have been blessed enough to experience the sights and sounds of New York every single day.
It was in 2003 at an orientation for Best Buy that we first officially met. We were coworkers for a brief stint and became really good friends throughout the years. We were always teased by friends that would say a romantic relationship was inevitable between us. But, it wasn't until we were both living in New York that we decided to give this relationship a try.
What started as a friendship quickly blossomed into a strong love for one another. We were engaged in July 2014, and now we're finally getting married!
