What is your fashion view?
Fashion is the first thing someone notices about you.  I never know when I’m going to run into a potential client, so I keep that in mind every morning before I walk out the door.

How do you describe your style?
I would describe my style as progressive for this city, though Louisville is finally coming into its own in that regard.  I’ve got the confidence to take a few fashion risks, and I’m continually reinventing my style.

What are your favorite pieces?
I can never go wrong with a black V-neck, and I’ve got a drawer full of them, clean and ready-to-go at all times.

Where is your favorite place to shop?
I love to travel and am constantly exploring other cities for shopping opportunities. I’m not swayed by brands.  I use style to promote ME, therefore labels aren’t of interest.

Who is your fashion icon?
I guess my style is somewhere between Zach Morris and Bradley Cooper.  Yes, I said Zach Morris.  I love retro style, and I’m not afraid to scour thrift stores to create eclectic ensembles when appropriate.

You always manage to look good while staying so incredibly busy.
In 2011, I left my position as an architect to focus on Redtagideas.com. We’ve grown from our inception as an event production company into a full-service marketing agency providing a full range of business identity development services.

Some of the upcoming events we’re involved in include After Hours at 60 West Bistro and Martini Bar this Friday from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.; the 2nd Annual Derby Soiree at Majid’s in St. Matthews on May 3; and the Maxim Magazine Fillies and Stallions Party on Derby Eve, May 4.
