How did you get started?  I was working in menswear at Ralph Lauren and saw a white space in the men’s swimwear market that excited me enough to take the leap.

Is women’s in the future? Yes, we are very excited to be working on our first collection now.

What is the inspiration behind your brand?  It started with the creation of modern whimsical prints for swimwear and is now a full resort wear line for men and women in the near future.

How would you describe your own personal style?   Casual, understated, sophisticated.

What trend are you loving this season?  Terry cloth shirts and leisurewear for men.

Give us a style tip for your brand?  If it feels good, wear it.

If we came to visit you in Palm Beach what should we do?  A bike ride on the lake trail along the Intracoastal Waterway.

Does where you’re based effect your designs? Palm Beach has a casual yet sophisticated sensibility with a fun and sporty lifestyle so we have a great reference point that we use to create resort styles that would translate all over the world.

Favorite Beach?  The beaches in The Exumas.

Favorite Food?  Fresh caught grilled fish and veggies.

Favorite Quote?  “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.”  -John Lennon
