A Bit About Me

Born and raised in Dallas, TX. I am a first generation Mexican American. I went to Skyline High School, where I began my horticulture journey. During high school I stated working at a local garden center on the weekends. I later ended up working at Nicholson Hardie where I met my Flower Godmother, Gayla Alders.

After I graduated from college, Gayla encouraged me to hone in on my passion for design and flora. She pushed me to look for a job in a floral studios where I could learn more. I quickly got sucked into the more organic, artful designs and began to play with weeds and flowers from my garden. After some years of playing with flowers on the side, I left my full time job to pursue my passion for travel and floral design.
