There are cities for business and then there are cities for pleasure yet Florence manages two marry both seamlessly, although it skews more towards the side of delights. Can you blame it? This place was made for dreams and storytellers.

From the duomo to the Ponte V, if there’s a soundtrack to Florence it would be that of my camera’s shutter button going off every five or six seconds. It was as if I was another paparazzo before Kim K and her clan; no shortage of photographers anywhere.

And what’s Florence without a little men’s style?

Calvin Klein: A House Full of Popcorn

IMG_3760

Have you ever felt that feeling when you absolutely know you’ll never repeat an experience ever again? I can almost bet my life that I’ll never be surrounded again by three semi-trailers worth of popcorn. If you think I’m wrong and can think of another instance when I will be, please hit me up; we need to chat.

For the 2018 fall/winter season I joined the Bureau Betak team as a freelance production assistant that saw me enter a post-apocalyptic world on 70’s Americana also known as Calvin Klein by Raf Simons. I’ve worked well over 100 shows throughout the years but this one was definitely in a league of its own. I still have popcorn kernels stuck in my shoes. While the work was all the same as in any other production, the vibe was definitely surreal and I credit that to Raf’s vision. It’s often said that a great organization is run by a great head and you can definitely see that he’s creatively running CK, reinvigorating it with the dose of B-12 we didn’t know the brand needed. Western wear was modern and sleek and Mumford and Son’s sound of silence was uplifting; for not making any sense everything perfectly gelled and made sense.

If you want to see something you’ve never seen, I definitely encourage you to check out the clip below and see how fun a red barn can be.

PS – This all happened inside of the New York Stock Exchange. Makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?

This might’ve been for the holidays but let’s be honest. Who needs an excuse to give our friends some love?

Thanks again to the team at Un Nuevo Día for inviting me back to shower some special in-studio guests with holiday love. This time I didn’t forget about our bird, aquatic and reptile friends.

NYFW S/S ’18 may now be in the past but its memories and friendships are always alive and present. Lots of new trends, a little street style, a meet and greet with W’s Editor In Chief Giovanna Battaglia and many skipped heart beats; here’s a photo story of my take on this season.

Culture does the soul plenty good, especially when it’s an experience you’ve been yearning for your entire life. MOMA has always been one of those places that has been so accessible that visiting it becomes impossible. After a lifetime of visiting and traveling to New York for work, I was finally able to pay homage to the house that made my impressionist heart skip a beat.

I’ve been to a variety of galleries across the world, from the Louvre to the Museum of Anthropology in D.F. but along with Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, MOMA has had a special place in my heart since I was a child. In school when we would be tasked to come dressed or research our favorite heroes from history, my go-to was always Vincent. I know his life forwards and backwards and contrary to popular belief, I don’t think he was mad but rather he was a hopeless romantic whose passion was limitless. To say the least, Starry Night left stars in my eyes.

Cat Gossip on Un Nuevo Dia

FullSizeRender

On Wednesday, May 17, yours truly became a pet accessories expert on Telemundo’s live national morning show, Un Nuevo Dia. I participated as part of panel conversation on the importance of adopting cats, common myths, and kitten play; we were certainly dishing about our feline friends. In working with client Catit, the network invited the brand to the studio where they showcased their “Catit Playground” which features a variety of product from their Senses 2.0 line, that when put together create a life-size playground for cats.

With collaboration from Miami’s The Cat Network, the playground came alive with real adoptable kittens on set that were playing and giving us our daily dose of aww.
