I salsa dance, play ultimate frisbee, and make a mean empanada. But I also like to experiment with things that just sound like fun. Which is why I once opened an online boutique with my favorite showrooms in LA. I designed the website, did photoshoots, and managed the inventory. Then I moved to Manhattan and waved goodbye to closet space. It was great while it lasted!

I also like to dig in other people's garages and fix up with old furniture...with their permission, of course. There's nothing better than an estate sale in the middle of nowhere.
