Rose Apodaca is co-founder of A+R, as well as a best-selling author, award-winning journalist, exhibition curator and brand and product consultant. Rose and her other half Andy Griffith live happily with their daughter Nina somewhere on a hill in the L.A. enclave of Silver Lake.

Prior to working at A+R as the social media-marketing intern, Emily would wander around the La Brea store and marvel at the plethora of brightly colored pieces in the modern design atelier. Now, not only does she get to enjoy working here three days a week, her eyes are constantly being sharpened to hunt for the brightest news in bold, nascent design.
She currently studies Advertising with a minor in Management at the University of Minnesota: Twin Cities and is a photographer on the side.
