I'm a celebrity fashion stylist working with a list of US and Caribbean clients. I was featured on a VH1 stylist show called Glam God, and this launched my career in the States. I started off with my fashion line and was fortunate to have a host of Hollywood girls wear my blouses. I'm originally from the Cayman Islands, studied in London, have two degrees in finance and apparel manufacturing. My aim is to do more magazine editorials and dabble in a variety of costumier assignments.
