About 

With a background in architecture, art history, and classics, I am constantly exploring the communication between these domains and others. My brand veanad is devoted to high-end craft and design and quality over quantity. As the 12th most followed account on Pinterest, I hope to harness my social media influence together with my architectural education in order to transition veanad into new design territories.

Employment 

veanad, New York, NY, US, Founder

Connecting the domains of art history, architecture, and fashion, veanad positions itself at the intersection of subtle, resilient, and bold design. The core philosophy of veanad is founded on the practice of thoughtful investment in an effort to surround oneself with fewer, better things.

I began veanad in 2011 in hopes of discovering my aesthetic sensibilities. Today veanad is the 12th most followed account on Pinterest with over 5.5 million followers, illustrating the viability of high-end craft and design.

I have worked with clients such as NARS Cosmetics, Cuyana, Nordstrom, ShopStyle, and MR PORTER as a social media and brand consultant, digital influencer, and creative director.
