MY STORY

Being born in the Netherlands and raised by two Cape Verdean immigrants in Providence, Rhode Island made for a very unique childhood. I’ve been surrounded by multiple languages and vibrant communities my entire life ~ Portuguese creole is my first language & I taught myself Dutch ~ so it wasn't a surprise that when I started designing, most of what I created reflected an experience that reflected the world I experienced.

My twenty somethings have largely been inspired by calming sunsets, crisp sneakers, tasty vanilla chai lattes, and fiction novels I tend to flip through in 3 days. Oh and I have a slight obsession with french fries, paprika chips and Dutch curry ketchup!
