How would you like to see Indy grow: People to appreciate what they have. The town is amazing and beautiful. You have phenomenal architecture and beauty around every corner. I’d like to see more people call downtown home, bring these historic places back to their original structure and see people move into the homes that defined Indianapolis to refurbish them. I want to see people become attracted to Indianapolis, wether it’s out of towners or those that don’t see downtown as living friendly.

What does fashion mean to you: It means personality, it means definition. Having the confidence to be who you are, define who you are and let others see that.
