Story.

Founder/CEO

ABOUT ME

I was born in Puerto Rico, a tropical Island, in Aguadilla. I come from a large family experienced in many things, and sewing was one of those that always stuck with me. As Innovator, I'm always seeking new creations to bring to the world. Growing up, I have always been a dreamer, and lucky to gain many opportunities from family many things, even at a local trade school with many courses.​ Living in the United States has given me the freedom of expression to create beautiful things to share with the world, and to help with my creativity.  

A VISION OF SEWING

One day, as I was getting ready for work,  a vision kept appearing of a bowtie business. I thought it was going to turn into a blue sky dream until it came back, like a dark cloud. While traveling, I caught a heart attack, it felt like a big elephant sitting on my chest. But when you help yourself as I did by walking six blocked to the hospital, and keeping the faith, that dark cloud suddenly disappears. It felt like a miracle from God. Today, my heart is strong, powerful, and thanks to the team of heart doctors who save my life. I work with another second heart specialist that always makes sure my heart is healthy by running a test a couple of months and by making sure I have the proper medicine to have my stents free from any blood clogs happening without any restrictions.       

Life is funny, it plays with people's lives putting walls in front, just to test us from being strong, and happy. But If we tear them down, we can see our strength with the colors of a rainbow. As for me, being blessed many times has taught me to never forget, never to hold back, and continue pushing forward with possibilities without regrets. ​​Today I design casual bow ties, specialty products, and the Founder of Bow tie Menswear plus work closely with clients around the world with their design.
