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.
The block just north of Montefiore Park at 138th Street and Broadway used to have a set elegant retirement homes built on the site in 1889. This land belonged to the Sir Moses Haim Montefiore who was an Italian Jewish philanthropist who lived in Britain but donated money all over the world to help his people live better lives. A theater would take over this corner within three decades but the area just west of the City College Campus is still known as Montefiore Square.
