My career as a florist started 20 years ago, back when I was a different person who wanted a very different life. My dad used to ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up, and my answer was always "I wanted to be an artist," being a practical father his reply was always: artists don't make any money. But I wanted to do it just the same, and I knew even then that this was what I had to do and who I had to be.
Of course it was a long and difficult road, but getting the chance to pour everything that I had into my career was nothing less than what I would have settled for. It's been tough, but it's given me the chance to work with some of the most talented people through opportunities that I never would have dreamed would happen. Each new friendship or connection I made is what truly taught me to become a better version of myself and what I knew I wanted my business to be.
Whether it be designing florals for a wedding or planting a garden in my front yard, working with flowers fills me with the same passion and excitement that I have felt since the beginning and that has never changed.
No matter where I've ended up over the years, taking the hard road or getting lost along the way, flowers have always helped me feel like I was right at home.
