Q: What do you love about what you do? My favorite part about what we do is that we get to help people find and gift the best versions of their everyday jewelry. If you wear it and love it everyday and far into the future, I feel like I've done my job. Receiving a text or pic that "she said yes" or "she loves it" pinpoints the moment where I'm reminded of the reason I love this so much. Also, there’s nothing better than when our business has a chance to do something kind for someone or helpful to a local community organization.
Q: Best place to grab some food in Claremont? When you come visit us in the Claremont Village, you’ve got to check out some of the awesome restaurants! Walter’s is a favorite–I took my wife there on our first date nearly 20 years ago so we have many sweet memories. You can’t go wrong with Espiau's, Pepo Melo, Village Eatery, Wolfe's and Back Abbey. Is it bad if I want to eat Fifty 50 for all three meals every day? Oh and Uno Tre Otto recently broke my mind with how delicious it is!
Q: Best TV show ever? It's impossible for me to choose one best TV show, so here comes a list: The Sopranos, Zero Zero Zero, Ted Lasso, Seinfeld, The Wire, Game of Thrones, Years and Years, Curb and Breaking Bad all made my life meaningfully better.
