Skye Yayoi Drynan is the Founder, CEO, & Head of Design of House of Skye.
I believe in the power of reinvention and fighting for your dreams. Its been an incredible journey: From humble beginnings, I worked in my dads gift shop, then waited tables while earning a college scholarship. After graduating from college, I began my professional career at entry level, in a call center. After years of hard work and struggles in a cut-throat industry, I ultimately became one of the largest funders of biotech innovation globally. I am now pursuing my creative dreams in fashion and music. I had the courage to shatter glass ceilings through hard work and perseverance and so can you! Skys the limit! –Skye
