Tell us a little bit about your designing background.
"Growing up in Texas and going to camp in Missouri at Lake of the Ozarks embodies the story behind my brand. My grandfather, JJ, had a farm that we grew up on and I have the best memories playing with my cousins in the backyard, catching fireflies in mason jars, and getting muddy in the creek. In high school, I started going on Phish tours and had fun selling patchwork clothing and hemp necklaces out of the back of my car. Why my parents approved of this, I have no idea! I then moved to Israel and went to school for Gemology. My career started in the diamond wholesale business and I designed in New York City, where I founded The 2 Bandits."
