When did you decide to start St. Frank? Was it born out of a passion for design or to meet a need for a market you felt wasn’t being catered to?
"I certainly have had a life-long passion for art and design and also a deep devotion to supporting folks living in under-resourced settings."

"Those are the cornerstones of what we do, but I started St. Frank really out of a personal shopping pain point. I realized that, beyond the collected treasures I picked up on my travels, it was difficult for me to find beautiful pieces that spoke to my values as a ‘global citizen.’ And I wanted my home to tell the story of who I am. And that desire is the foundation on which I began to build St. Frank."
