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.
A sketch from 1919 shows the original facade of the Odeon Theatre at West 145th Street. Today, this building still stands just east of FDB/8th Avenue and a good portion of the ornamental details have been retained. The church that owns the former theater has also left the original hand painted signage on the side of the building intact and what remains of the Odeon appears to be in relatively good condition.
