JEFFREY launched his brand to create beautiful, timeless women’s fashion accessories inspired by his background in the automotive industry and his interest in merging design and technology.
With a career spanning scientific advisory, marketing, strategy, and corporate finance, and with a grandfather who was an award-winning architect and watercolor painter and an aunt whose sculpture now sits in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Jeffrey draws on his professional experiences to build his business and on his inherited creativity and natural curiosity to design his collections.
Previously, Jeffrey served as Managing Principal of Spring House Advisors, a boutique consultancy advising clients on growth initiatives and capital raising. Before that, he led Clean Tech and Project Finance efforts at Janney Capital Markets, where he completed $6 billion in transactions and advisory for clients in the US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Prior to that, Jeffrey worked for Jaguar Cars North America where he helped recraft Jaguar’s global brand strategy and launch several all-new models that modernized the iconic brand’s historic image. He is also an alumnus the Marketing Leadership Program at Ford Motor Company. Jeffrey began his career as a Scientific Advisor to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (and would like you to know that he did earn a "Level B" Hazardous Materials Response Certification).
Jeffrey earned a Bachelor of Arts from Wesleyan University, a Masters of Maritime Economics and Policy from the University of Delaware, and an MBA from the University of Virginia.
