I started ModCloth.com in June, 2002 during that wonderful summer after high school and before college. I originally started the site to support my thrifting habit; I just couldn't leave a beautiful piece of clothing on the rack even if it didn't fit me.
For a long time the site was just a hobby; I would shop whenever I had the time between classes, activities, and a part time job. It wasn't until the end of my junior year (as everyone else was interviewing in the "real world" for "real jobs") that I decided to take the plunge and work on ModCloth full-time after graduation.
So, here I am, doing what I love and watching my hobby grow into the best place on the web for indie designers and one of a kind vintage pieces. I wake up excited and grateful to be able to go to work. Who wouldn't want to shop for a living?
