Alohaaa & welcome to a little project of mine that got way out of hand and had me scrambling to get a grasp on things before they had hardly begun- only in the best of ways. MIDORI was never something I dreamed of, it wasn't anything I had envisioned for years before beginning it.
Someone once told me "Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it: Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it." As a little girl growing up I always set off to make my ideas a reality; this one just happened to take root.
Beginning MIDORI certainly wasn't possible without a sprinkle of magic but 5 years later here I am sitting in our little HQ in beautiful La Jolla surrounded by an amazing team that keeps us going strong day after day. If you were to stop by our HQ you'd likely be welcomed by Daniel or Kelly, half of us would be barefoot, the windows would be open trying to force out the smell of our Tikka Masala lunch, and we'd be shouting music suggestions at each other across the room.

While we each excel in our own responsibilities, we've all got one another's backs and could take over for a teammate in the blink of an eye. Our flexibility, enjoyment of each other's company, and all around love for what we do has us coming back to the office day after day, even on those Monday's when we return from a weekend with 800 orders to pack and a slew of emails a mile long...
