But The World Knows Me As:
What decade do you think your personality would thrive in?
Everyone looks at the 70’s and 80’s for the style and music. I’m like but what about crack, violence, and OD racism. My personality probably would have gotten me in trouble in those eras. I’ve gotten in trouble in this decade lol. I’m good with making it in the now. No time like the present.

The most surprising thing I've learned about being a professional in this field is:
How cheap everything is overseas and how much the US taxes EVERYTHING.
How did you even get started in this industry or line of work?
I needed money lol. I was laid off from my old job and sending my resume everywhere. I got an interview and actually had to take a test. I passed and the rest was history. I had an idea about Imports but never thought of the logistics and how it actually works so this job opened my eyes to a niche industry
My colleagues and counterparts would be surprised or perhaps flabbergasted if they knew that I

Working amongst top tier fashion insiders, you become privy to a lot of style life hacks. Living in New York is not easy on the wallet so I’m all for a deal, steal, or bargain in order to save a coin or two. However, it feels good to look good while knowing that quality isn’t lost in the products you’re buying. Can you agree? What we wear and associate ourselves with is a form of self-expression and helps build connections with others, through those aesthetic interests.

So, I’m here to share some tips & tricks on getting out there and living your best fashionable life without breaking the bank…

I’m sure you figured making that initial decision to go was the biggest part of it, yeah you’ve considered what you may do for work, where you may live, how you’ll manage your experiences but at least for me, the biggest thing I didn’t account for was how to manage my soon to be long distance relationships....
