Desire to Do Good and Be Creative!
I never in a million years thought that this is how I would make a living when I was working a corporate job in 2010. But something beautiful happened, and here I am. I woke up one morning, unhappy, again, and decided to make a change. I decided to quit my job and travel the world! Thailand was one of the first places I stopped and I instantly fell in love. In love with the people, the food, the culture, the happiness that shines through so many that have so little, and the beautiful fabrics that came from the indigenous people of this country. While continuing my travels for the next 12 months a yearning to return to Thailand grew in me, and so did my desire to share this beauty with my friends and family who had never experienced it. By the end of 2011 I returned to Thailand, started "High Thai", and made my first piece of clothing that incorporated one of my dear friends, hand-sewn, traditional Thai fabric. Since this first trip I have been back to Thailand many times, and now live there during our slow seasons so I can spend my time creating in one of the most inspiring places on earth!
