Working with my hands is a form of meditation for me, and using beautiful materials to create unique, useful items that brighten someone's day makes me happy. It's my passion.
A native New Yorker, I grew up watching my father build, make, cut, create with wood, wires, paint, and power tools, and helped him with small tasks.
I first started making handbags in my downtime while working backstage on Broadway shows. I used leftover fabrics and leather from costumes to learn how to make handbags and soon enough, it became a small business.
My work has been sold in boutiques throughout New York City and at local artists' markets.
Each piece is designed, hand-cut, and handmade in my studio in Brooklyn, New York with materials sourced locally, leather remnants from luxury handbag designers in Italy, and Mexico. My limited Made in Italy collection is crafted by artisans in Italy.
I have worked on costumes and tailoring in television and film, as well as Broadway productions including Disney's The Lion King, Hamilton, Phantom of the Opera, Radio City Music Hall's Christmas Spectacular, and with world-renowned music artists at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY; in fashion, for shows of collections from Givenchy, Saint Laurent, and Emmanuel Ungaro; in sports, as the tailor to the players for the U.S. Open tennis tournament; and in costumes for television and film.
