I grew up in Indianapolis as a kid of two journalists. From the age of 14, I worked freelance and newspaper gigs for love and money. For love, I'm a photojournalist recording my own wardrobe. For money, I'm an analyst (and aspiring data scientist) at a firm in New York.
Gold Zipper started as a place for me to tell stories about my clothing. I’ve had a minimal wardrobe for over 10 years and built my first official capsule wardrobe in 2014. And as a teenager, I was featured in TeenVogue for curating my sustainable style through second-hand stores.
Today, I’m still sharing my wardrobe through cameras and beginning in 2018, through data. My hope is that through story telling and conversation, we can move away from being consumers of clothing and move toward becoming owners of the pieces we bring into our homes.
