avatar School: Washington University Sorority: Pi Beta Phi Time for a bio update. I'm entering my senior year at WashU in St. Louis and I'm about to decorate my first apartment! The time has come to move from dorm to apartment, so I will be sharing all of my apartment decorating tips with juniors and seniors--it's NEVER too late to dormify your space (that includes you, post-grads!) Recap: My mom and I started Dormify when I was starting my freshman year, after my failure to find cool, chic, sophisticated dorm bedding in size twin XL. Since this very important market niche was missing, we knew we had to do something about it and we were pretty sure we could pull it off. We got right to work and after 2 years, Dormify is bigger than we could have imagined and continues to grow everyday. More about me: I'm a communication design and marketing double major, I'm from Potomac, MD, and I like to pretend I've lived in NYC for longer than two summers. To get to know me better, here are some things I love: my friends, my iPhone, the color orange, froyo, lazy Sundays, the beach, skiing, dark nail polish, spanish tapas, Israel, gold necklaces, abbreviations, anything truffled, football, fashion, Pi Beta Phi, almond butter, Friday Night Lights, red velvet cupcakes, baggy t-shirts, chocolate covered raisins, Michael Kors shoes, and the Dormify alphabet.
