I first became interested in tailored clothing as a cinema studies major in college. I was particularly drawn to the suits of classical Hollywood cinema. Gary Cooper, Humphrey Bogart, Cary Grant, Fred Astaire— such effortless elegance! I pursued my interest and studied pattern making at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and aspiring to the highest level of the form, I went on to study handcraft tailoring at the London College of Fashion.  

In London, I apprenticed as a cutter at Thom Sweeney of Mayfair under Matthew Gonzales, and at Welsh & Jefferies on Savile Row under James Cottrell. Upon finishing my apprenticeships, I returned to the US to establish a bespoke tailoring firm of my own. I am thrilled to provide the rare and special service of true bespoke tailoring in Nashville, Tennessee.
