I was born and raised here in the Bay Area, more specifically the Peninsula, more specifically Burlingame and have lived in SF proper for the last year and a half. After university at Pepperdine, and moving to Manhattan, I moved back to the best city in the world (overstatement!) to work for big corporate. One day, a year ago, I decided that I wanted to work for myself and try to make the world better... all at the same time! That's how hiip came to be - I love fashion and I love people and I think that if we try a little bit harder, and we change our corner of the world, we can change the world overall.
