I am a first generation Vietnamese-American who was raised in the great state of Texas (H-town represent).
After graduating from design School, I accepted an unlikely position working with denim. My uncertainty soon turned into passion as I realized just how unique the denim industry is. It didn’t take me long to make a decision to continue down this path. My expertise caught the attention of denim companies in New York City and the job inquiries came pouring in.
Now I'm enjoying life as a New Yorker while still embracing my roots. As a designer at the Jones Group, I work diligently with the better brands team on the Nine West/Nine West Vintage America/Code Bleu denim collections, whilst channeling the essence of who I am into my work.
I'd like to think of myself as an eclectic person who creates combining everything I love (e.g. nature, rap music, foreign cultures, clouds, beef pho, cowboys, vintage décor, Brooklyn, folklore, people who are reading this) into something aesthetically pleasing.
