After a fantastic 7 year International Corporate Merchandising and Product Development career at Polo Ralph Lauren, I have been on a search for the next chapter in my life story. What’s the next step? I will be “The Next Gay Travel Guru!” Born and raised by my Italian-speaking family, I learned about different cultures very early in life while living in the predominantly Latino neighborhood of downtown Paterson, NJ.
I learned to speak both Italian and Spanish at an early age and was no stranger to travel. Besides travelling throughout international hot spots in Italy, France, UK, and The Netherlands, I also lived in Rome, Italy. Living in NYC for over 10 years, and graduating from The Fashion Institute of Technology with Magna Cum Laude honors, has blessed me with a special combination of book and street smarts.
My outgoing personality, unique sense of style, and experience, definitely make me the ideal candidate for the grand prize title. My career in the fashion industry commenced over 10 years ago working at A|X Armani Exchange, Sixty USA, John Varvatos and Polo Ralph Lauren Underwear. I assisted on the overseas expansion of the European and Asian business territories for Polo Jeans Company, and most recently, worked on the brand launch for Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren. Currently, I am involved in fashion styling for major international fashion publications and am also a fit model for a new high-end T-shirt line.
