A Discussion of Details
Our Tailored Twig website and blog showcases our inspiration, design creations and the weddings and events we are honored to be part of, but we wanted to take some time to introduce you to some of our fantastic design team.
First up, and not at all excited to be in the spot light is our incredible Tailored Twig Lead Designer Daniel Gonzalez. We had a little fun talking about things beyond floral design and creation.
Have a Little Fun
Daniel is from Camagüey, Cuba about halfway between Havana and Santiago de Cuba. It was no surprise that when we asked him about his favorite beer, wine or cocktail that he responded “Mojitos! Preferably, with Cuban rum.”
Daniel is a foody, when we asked what his last meal would be he joked “Sushi, Mexican, Italian and Indian.”
One of our favorite things about Daniel is that he’s not afraid to dance. Daniel’s favorite type of music is ‘Girl Talk” a DJ mashup on Pandora that Daniel always has playing in the Tailored Twig studio.
On A Serious Side
Daniel owns a two year old Pitbull named Duke that he rescued when his homeless owner died of an overdose. They are quite the pair.
Tailored Twig owner, Darin Bahl said the one thing about Daniel that makes him smile is his ability to come up with a solution to basically any challenge, “it makes my heart smile.” Daniel’s favorite phase is “make it work.”
Daniel began his career in floral design seven years ago and has been working with our Tailored Twig design team for two years. His talent is so impressive, one minute he is pulling out a vessel for an arrangement and then look up again to see a gorgeous arrangement, sometimes more than one.
His creative talents extend beyond floral design; there are pieces of his artwork hanging in our studio.
Daniel says his favorite part of his job is conceptualizing and ultimately building things we’ve never seen or done before. And he does it so well.
Beyond his artistic talents and being an incredible floral designer, Daniel is a wonderful friend. He is a great listener and gives great advice and has a great laugh, whichever you might need.
We are overjoyed to have Daniel as our Tailored Twig Lead Designer, be sure to say HI to him the next time you are in our studio, you will be glad you did!
