Miachel Pruett

Watch out every one there's a new designer in town. Fellow Texan Miachel Pruett,  graduated from UT-Austin,  she now works at D'esposito & partners. In her short career, she has already accomplished many things including, landing a job and moving to New York City. I met with her for coffee at Eataly, I wanted to pick her brain a little here it is:
