I brought this concept to Hollywood. My clientele began with Rock Stars, for whom I costumed for album covers and music video appearances on MTV. As Clothestrophobia grew, so did the suitcases for out-of-town visitors and entertainers travelling ‘on the road.’
In 1981, I was told by a band member of The Rolling Stones, the impact my father-in-law, had on his career. Curiosity abound, I amassed a collection of this legendary disc jockey, Alan Freed. My styling skills filtered through, as I became an archivist and webmaster. In present day, each item I acquired, can be viewed online, or seen at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Raising 4 daughters was my greatest endeavor. Each day, began with a typed list of who, what, when and where, down to separate lunch box requests. Daily life included; marketing, laundry, cooking, bathing, sleep-overs, birthday parties, packing, traveling and holidays. My time-line as a parent, proceeded the luxury of Amazon, eBay and shopping on the internet. The only thing delivered to our home was cloth diapers, bottled water and milk.
By 2001, I was consistently asked by friends, or friends of friends, if I was available to organize their homes and offices. Sellers were referred for me to ‘edit’ their properties for staging and photography. Immersing my previous skill sets and knowledge, real estate agents became familiar with my work. I designed and built a 5800-square ft. home in Santa Monica, as well as flipped 5 houses. My expertise grew and flew me to Chicago, Minnesota and New York City.
In recent years, my organization slowly jockeyed toward the internet. The baby boomers required assistance with social media, websites, or digital footprint. Passwords, hard drives, monthly payments online create another layer, I provide.
Managing the clutter, confusion and chaos, of life’s transitions requires teamwork. I surround myself with carpenters, painters and moving men. A shopping spree includes Home Depot, Amazon and Container Store.
Let me be "At Your Service."
