LIVING LIFE AS AN ADVENTURE

I can't remember a time when I wasn't taking photos of everything and doodling all over important documents :) I was born an artist and adventurer! 
After receiving a BFA from the University of Michigan, I went on to travel the world, teaching english and working on documentaries + photoshoots in over 45 countries. With a deep passion for design and creating spaces that make people feel good, I worked at Anthropologie as a visual merchandiser. While taking a leap of faith, I left my job, packed my suitcase and began looking for manufactures to bring my home decor designs to life. In 2013, I launched bunglo - a line of home goods that are made to mix and match. bunglo is sold at Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Anthroplogie, Tory Burch, Lulu & Georgia, Domino and ABC Carpet & Home. I currently spend my days designing, capturing photos, traveling, practicing yoga and making vegan meals with my husband, Jason and taking long walks with our dog, Hunter.  Life is good.
