I was 15 and a busboy in the Chaparral Room at the Camelback Inn.

Worst job you ever had?
A busboy at the Camelback Inn...a total nightmare!

Worst job you can imagine?
One sitting in a gray office or cubicle calling people like me that hang up on you...okay, I at least warn them I am going to hang up!

List three awesome things you did at work in the past year.
I created my own happiness! I found my passion outside of the bedroom! I met former super model Tatiana Sorokko (run to the Phoenix Art Museum and see her collection on exhibit) and Mr. Galanos, my favorite all-time Hollywood Designer (the rest of them are dead).

Name a job you'd quit this one for.
My own fashion television show...(maybe my next creation).

How do we get your job?
Shop in my store...the more you buy, the more I make so I can hire more staff!!!!!
