Alden is a native of San Diego, California, but after eight years in the city considers herself a true New Yorker. In 2015 she founded her own interior design company, Interiors by Alden. She discovered her passion for design after a year of backpacking solo through Europe. Since then, she has traveled to many countries, with the desire to experience as many cultures as possible. She is a lover of all things creative –photography, painting, fashion, flower arranging and cooking. Alden played Division I lacrosse at UC Davis and is an avid sports fan. On the weekends you will find her at the pub watching football or playing a game of pool. Through her creative and competitive nature, she hopes to inspire women, and especially teenage girls, to follow their heart and dreams.
