- I learned to sew my own clothes when I was 9 years-old and continued with my hobby
- Attended Apparel Arts in San Francisco learning pattern making and design.
- Attended multiple construction, draping, materials, and couture classes.
- I design much of my wardrobe always finding something new to challenge me.
- Project Funway started on a whim to supply summer employment to my daughters and friends and the momentum continues 14 years later.
