Parsons School of Design alumnus with a BFA in fashion, who has worked in the menswear industry for several years. Past lives have been in the East Village and Lower East Side of Manhattan; more recently transplanted to Harlem. Currently living in a 1907 "French flat," an Edwardian era middle-class apartment.
An interior photo of Proctor's on 125th Street circa 1904 shows an ornate theatre lobby in East Harlem that has been long gone. Pattern carpets decorate floor, painted wall plaster decorate the chair rail and the Victorian era love of plants is evident. Palms were a favorite in many households at the time and public venues apparently also share this enthusiasm for nature. The establishment located just east of Park Avenue was demolished sometimes ago a new building now sits at this site.
