Behind the Scenes....The Team at Confections

Posted July 25, 2011

Behind the Scenes of Confections

One of my favorite things is to look behind the scenes.  I love to know how things are made and what is the story behind it.  As a designer I am always love to find out how others in my field find their inspiration, what makes them tick so to speak.  So I thought it would be fun over the next few blog entries to share with you who makes up the Confections team.  And apparently I am going first…..

What is your position at Confections?

Owner / Designer

Where were you born, and where do you live now?

I was born in NYC.  I have lived here in Memphis almost 13 years. 


I have been married just about 16 years and we have three children.  2 in middle school and 1 in elementary school…it is never boring or dull at my house.  And just to make sure of that we also have 3 dogs.  All pound puppies that we rescued.

What is your favorite hobby or sport?

Running!  Always has been and if I am lucky always will be.

What is something you always keep in your car?

My iPhone charger.  This ties in nicely with my obsession of always having my phone with  me.
