Meet the Collective...
CEO and Co-Founder - Growing up in California has been my main source of inspiration for all in life. As a child of the 90's I shopped vintage and learned to sew by customizing clothes. As an adult I am always on the lookout for special pieces. Although I have spent the majority of my career working with my first love - shoes, I am now most happy barefoot with my feet in the sand spending time with my one year old son and wife.
CCO and Co-Founder - Inspired by my Santa Barbara upbringing, nature, my women peers, my husband, my two sons, my sister, my home, my closest confidantes, period films, edwardian and victorian vintage clothing, feeling connected and life. I have sketched clothes since I could hold a pencil, getting to make them a reality in my career has been an incredible joy. Launching DÔEN is an extension of that joy, and my most fulfilling endeavor thus far.
Founding partner and creative consultant - I currently live between Los Angeles and Aspen with my dog Pearl. My first real love is antique jewelry and I also do work as a gemologist. My other passion is to discover and collect vintage furniture, object and beautiful clothing-both old and new. I am usually drawn to unique and special pieces that appear modern despite their age.
Founding Partner - I am a design fiction and comedy artist, philanthropist and mother. My daughter Dylan and I split our time between Portland, and Santa Monica. I have a BFA from Reed College and an MFA from Central Saint Martins. As the head of the Calligram foundation, I have had the chance to nurture a number of exciting projects including the Precipice Fund.
Partner and Creative/Design Consultant - I am a photographer, textiles / design / branding consultant, and mother living in Los Angeles. I am so happy to be helping with concepting and design for Doen, and also contributing editorial-style photography for the website featuring various subjects wearing their favorite pieces from the line.
Partner and Financial Advisor - I was raised in Santa Barbara and am currently living in Venice, CA. I love nature, numbers, health and fitness! I am a CPA who has worked with a variety of firms as a forensic accountant to an accounting manager for a tech start up and love consulting on various start ups and new ventures. I’m very excited to be partnering with DÔEN as it allows me to blend my love of fashion and finances.
Content Director - I live in a Venice beach bungalow with my love and our black cat Lincoln. I'm a vintage junkie (own close to 30 plain white t-shirts, all with holes) and am happiest being creative, working with women who I look up to and empower me. I feel most inspired finding vintage photos from the 70s and listening to The Velvet Underground.
Partner and Legal Advisor-- I am from Texas, but spent all my summers growing up in California, and then went to Stanford for undergrad and graduate school (in statistics). I ended up on the east coast at Harvard for law school, but knew I had to get back to California's warm weather and culture of being outside all year long. I love helping Doen grow, and I feel so honored and inspired to be a part of the Collective!
