When I was in my last year of college at the University of Ottawa I volunteered to plan our 25th Annual Marketing Competition and Gala. I had to do everything from sending out invitations to picking the napkin colors. I had a full course load, worked at Starbucks and put in several hours a day planning this event for months. I didn’t sleep much and my days were jam packed. It was crazy, chaotic, demanding….and I wanted to do this for the rest of my life! Read More>>
Provenance Rentals developed from our love of vintage, antiques, details, and event planning. Growing up, my mother, a single parent, instilled values in my sister and me to be hard-working, diligent, and self-reliant. If we could not afford something, then we must be creative: make the dollar stretch, use what you’ve got, work extra-hard, make something ourselves — these basic tenets encouraged us to be resourceful.

Taking photos has made me happy for as long as I can remember, even before it became so easy to do it on mobile devices and little pocket cameras. I was always that person that couldn’t be found in any photos because I was the one taking them. It’s a way for me to hold on to a great moment, to relive the emotion of that moment and most of all: It’s just so much fun! My first photo album consisted of a collection of pictures of all my stuffed animals….a long time ago! Read More>>
I’ve been in the fitness industry since 1995. I began as a personal trainer and worked my way up to eventually running such clubs as World Gym and Equinox. In the fitness industry, there’s a running joke among members that they are our ideal customers – they pay us and they never come. Can you imagine someone buying travel or eating at a restaurant saying something like that? That’s the unique challenge with fitness – when you buy a television or a car, you have a television or a car. When you join a gym, all you get is an intangible opportunity to get fit. And it’s amazing how many people lie to themselves and to us. They tell us how much they love working out and the only reason they stopped was because of time or money. But of course, if they truly enjoyed exercise they’d find the money and make the time. It’s because working out is just that – “work.” Read More>>
I was a strong, highly motivated team handball player for years, achieving many medals in my native country of Poland, and was a multiple winner in 100-meter races. I have always loved the variety in life and in sports: I love skiing, snowboarding, roller skating, cycling and scuba diving. I love movement in general and I am very active in everyday life. After moving to California 4 years ago, I fell in love with the amazing energy of spinning classes. I also tried yoga for the first time and discovered how good it is for my body and mind.
