                      Annie gained her marketing degree in the UK, going on to head up Visual Merchandising for Daniel Hechter including runway shows at Paris Design Week. She returned to London as PR Manager for collections, including Oliver Strelli and Karl Lagerfeld. In 1996 she moved to DC translating her skills into the world of live events. Now CEO and Creative Director at Design Foundry, she was recently honored as a top event designer by BizBash, and Smart Meetings named her one of their Smart Women of 2017.

                        With a B.F.A in industrial design, Aleks worked as an exhibit and event designer for Hargrove, in DC for seven years. Then went to work for Laundry Group, an interior design firm specializing in restaurants, bars and retail stores for clients around the world. Later, at Avista Events, he designed special events and environments and three years later, Annie partnered with Aleks and founded Design Foundry with an emphasis on making design an integral part of the event lexicon.
