Meet the Founder

I love shoes. I’ve been obsessed with them my entire life. After years of buying and selling footwear as an executive, my expert eye can spot a gem in a crowded marketplace or an off-the-beaten-path shop. The thrill of those discoveries is an important part of the buying process for me.

As both a merchant and discerning shopper, I’ve been frustrated by the sea of sameness resulting from mass-produced product. Finding something truly differentiated is a challenge, and my expectations for quality have only increased over time. My inspiration for Bells & Becks came on a buying trip in Italy, where I discovered a world of unique, high-quality footwear that just isn’t being sold in the U.S. After 25 years in the retail business, I decided that it was time to bring that thrill of discovery to customers back home.

Bells & Becks reflects my personal perspective about the very best shoes, what makes them special, and the behind-the-scenes stories of how I discovered them. The collection is the realization of a lifelong dream to combine my expertise, passion, and taste to make luxury shoes that are both wearable and feminine—a rare combination. My hope is to bring quality, distinctive footwear directly to you, so that you, too, can experience the thrill of finding, wearing, and getting compliments on that special shoe.
