I still have the check my first “real” client sent me over the mail. It is a constant reminder of the importance of giving small business the opportunity the same way someone gave it to me long time ago. This check served as momentum to believe in myself and to keep moving. This first job was a result of the love I have for interior design, art, architecture. It never felt as “work”.
The Novogratz - PlazaDeco Magazine
Super cool and talented couple Robert and Cortney Novogratz (yes, The Novogratz!) adopted my beautiful Mateo Paso Fino Malpaso who now sits comfortably in the designer's newly renovated home in The Greenwich Village in Manhattan (YAY!) What happens when you live in one of the coolest houses in the city? Well, you start acting like a superstar and superstars make it to magazine covers. Yes, go ahead, zoom in. That's my Mateo Pasofino Malpaso striking a pose on the cover of Plaza Deco Sweden. Tack själv!

Superfine! Art Fair (In real life)
Wow! What a year! 2021, the year that we thought we were going back to normal, the new roaring 20's, the year without a face mask. Well, almost at least. Slowly but surely we are going back to a new normal and the Art world is for sure one of the pioneers. I was honored to be part of this phenomenal Art Fair.
Superfine! Art Fair
And just when I was about to exhibit in NYC for the first time IRL, Covid-19 came and said: "Not so fast pal! Hold your horses until 2021". But don't worry, we will have this 2020 edition fair whether Covid likes it or not. However, we are having an e-fair version.

10 Design firms paired with 20 manufacturers for an unforgettable runway experience. Award for Best Theme Interpretation (Flamenco). I literally danced myself down the runway. I got Jacobs one of the best awards and got myself a beautiful head piece.
Fall 2019 Mana Open House
When I used to live in Jersey City, Mana Contemporary was my go to place to immerse myself in beautiful art. Then one day Duetto Gallery asked me if I wanted to be part of their open house event and of course I said "Yes!"
