Background: I founded Stylesight in 2003, but my career began in the late sixties as a menswear designer with a collection under my name. I held senior executive positions at Arthur Richards and Polo before launching my own company in the private label arena, which lead to more than 20 years of designing and manufacturing both men’s and women's apparel. I founded CMT Enterprises in 1979, which designed and produced private brands for many top American retailers including Saks Fifth Avenue, QVC and Limited Stores.
Why did you curate IdeaPaint? We’ve put this product on as many available walls as we could find, and we like the idea of just getting up and framing out an idea immediately. I love that it’s so easy to paint on, and how well it works. No smudges or marks. Also, it’s very cool.
Favorite meal: I must admit, pizza.
Recent purchase: I love my new Diesel sneakers.
Hidden talent: I can wiggle my ears.
Film recommendation: Inglourious Basterds
Restaurant recommendation: Trattoria 4 Leoni in Florence, Italy.
If I had $20, I’d… Be very upset.
Transformative travel experience: My first trip to India, which began in Chennai.
Favorite neighborhood: West Village, NYC.
Dream holiday: Any quiet, deserted beach. Anywhere.
If I could solve one problem, it would be: Stamping out hypocrisy wherever it exists.
I wish people cared more about: Other people.
Recent big aha!: Creative Lifecycle Management (CLM), Stylesight’s new invention.
The world would be a better place if: We got our priorities in order.
