What do you do for Gap Inc.?

I oversee all photography assets created for Intermix.

What inspires you?

Art, music, dance…the diverse nature of the human spirit!

Style personality

Menswear inspirited with some bling and an edge.

Go-to outfit

Black jeans, white T-shirt and a tuxedo jacket, then some type of statement footwear.

All-time favorite piece of clothing

Oh, that’s tough! I had a pair of blue leather pants in the 80’s that were everything to me at the time. I hung them on the wall in my room when I wasn’t wearing them.

Last purchase

Actually…pajamas at the Gap near the office! 

What you’ve learned from customers

People feel better when they love what they have on.

Favorite Gap Inc. moment

It’s a personal Gap moment. When I was in junior high, we were on a trip to San Francisco and we went to the Gap store. It was when the jingle said “fall…in…to…the…Gap” – and I got brightly-colored jeans and wore them the rest of the trip.

First job

I was 12 years old, working for my dad as a switchboard operator. I’ve always held at least one job since then.  

Epiphany moment

I have them regularly. But the one that stands out is from when I was about 6 or 7 years old, and really made the connection in my head, that the outcome of whatever it is that you are working on or towards, is directly related to the amount of focus and attention you give to that subject.

Always puts you in a good mood

I’m not going to lie. Cheese.

What makes you most excited to come to work in the morning?

My team!!! They are amazing, dedicated and just all around great people. I am crazy lucky.

Why Gap Inc.?

Intermix worked out in a very organic way, but I love that it is part of Gap. I have always been a Gap shopper. My kids grew up wearing Gap and Old Navy, and over the years I always loved the celebrity shoots for holidays…such amazing talent behind and in front of the camera. It’s pretty cool it worked out this way!
