My store Saint Seneca has been a love affair in the making for the last 20 years, but wasn't ever a possibility until the passing of my father which is bittersweet. His name was Bob, he was a car designer and a man that smiled with his entire body. He was equal parts flirt and joker and always had a twinkle in his eyes. My partner Leo and I built this store with our bare hands, literally from the ground up. It was our first joint venture together that taught us if you have a vision, an awesome network of talented friends and tube of glue, you can pretty much stick anything on the wall, even though you shouldn't.
