I started my career in retail, doing jobs like selling, buying products, and managing stores. Then, I switched to the creative side by working on store displays as a freelancer at FAO Schwarz. I moved up the ladder and eventually became the VP Creative Director at FAO Schwarz. After 10 years there, I was asked to be a Marketing VP at Toys’R’Us.
I grew up near Disneyland, and it was like my first school for design. I learned important things like planning, how people move around, architecture, making things look good, and most importantly, how to create fun.
