Goodness It's a long story. I'm trying to make sure. I've been in the industry for a long time I started my career in the mid nineties actually in the apparel industry and young creative person who thought that i was going to be a fashion designer I was born and raised in ohio and As you may know some folks may know. The limited brands is based in columbus. Ohio and Limited and especially in the mid nineties was a very big force in retail and and specialty apparel And if you lived in ohio you're very aware of the presence of that business there. I was really fortunate Right out of school to get. what was i think. A lot of people thought was a dream job which was Working with a really renowned fashion director there who was really known as a cool hunter and trend forecaster And you know he took me under his wing and really became my mentor.
