Lots of love to all our Flashionistas out there for wearing and sharing Flash Tattoos...you babes are awesome. Truly, the best in the world! XO
Meet the Flashionistas!
Miranda Burnet // FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR
The babe who started it all! Miranda – a.k.a., “Grandmaster Flash” – lit the fuse of metallic jewelry temporary tattoos and made the trend explode across the globe. Deciding to put her B.S. in International Business and M.F.A. in Design to good use, Miranda started Flash Tattoos in 2013 with a big idea funded by a little credit card.
When Miranda isn’t busy dreaming up new collections, this bodacious Indonesian-Australian-Texan (wha?!) loves traveling to exotic beaches, chilling with a glass of bubbly, and snuggling with her kitties, Dingo and Kiwi.
Michelle Garza // Vice President of Operations
Michelle is our resident Olivia Pope – there is nothing this girl can’t handle! She not only oversees the day-to-day activities at Flash Tattoos HQ, but she can hold her own in a courtroom. Yes, this pint-sized Flashionista is also an attorney with a B.A. from Harvard and J.D. from the University of Texas. Wicked awesome, y’all.
She is also an all-star when it comes to cooking tasty vegetarian dishes, loves a good glass of red wine, and likes watching reruns of Will & Grace.
Nathalie Hennessee // DIRECTOR OF FINANCE
Numbers and Nathalie go together like peanut butter and jelly. She keeps the Flash finances in check and has a really good time doing it - she’s always Flashing us that pretty smile!
This Lebanese-Venezuelan beauty enjoys cheering on her favorite soccer teams (go, FC Barcelona!) with an ice, cold… Bud Light. But more than anything, she loves kids and once made a solo trip to a tiny town in Kenya to work at an orphanage. She is a super mom to her adorable son, Landon.
Alexandra Hill // DIRECTOR OF SALES
Alex is her name, retail is her game. A sassy mix of brains and beauty, Alex has many years of experience in the retail industry. Her mad ‘sales ninja’ skills are the reason you’ll find Flash in every corner of the globe.
This beauty chameleon frequently changes up her hair color and has an unparalleled sense of style. She loves doting on her regal Maltese pup Louis XIV, watching Downton Abbey and has never met a kolache she didn’t like.
SAMANTHA LEE // ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE - EAST COAST SALES
After a stylish stint in NYC working in fashion and visiting every brunch spot in the city, this Austin native moved back to Texas with an affinity for the East Coast. With a keen eye for style and a slight obsession with online shopping, Sam makes sure fellow shopaholics from Toronto to Florida (and everywhere in between) can find the Flash they need in local boutiques.
She’s also a certified yoga instructor (you should see her do a headstand!), aims to fill up her passport with stamps from every corner of the world, and has a serious sweet tooth...bring on the macaroons!
HANNAH RINGLEY // ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE - WEST COAST SALES
This Southern belle is about as sweet as they come. When we’re not distracting Hannah with endless compliments on her naturally super-long and gorgeous eyelashes, she’s busy bringing the Flash fabulousness to the West Coast and Hawaii.
In her spare time, Hannah brews kombucha, details her culinary adventures on her blog, and can make some really impressive outfits with a needle and thread. She’s also a former competitive dancer, so she knows how to bust a move!
KIRSTEN STODDARD // PR & Marketing Manager
A PR gal with a penchant for graphic design, Kirsten can be found working with editors and bloggers, developing new partnerships, or trying to fit her thoughts into 140-characters or less on a day-to-day basis. A sometimes difficult task for this chatter box!
She’s totally obsessed with her sassy Jack Russell/Aussie shepherd pup Miles, is a sucker for mid-century design, quotes Ace Ventura movie lines on the regular, and is a firm believer that a girl can never have too many beauty products in her arsenal (especially when it comes to nail polish).
FRANCES WEIL // E-commerce & Events Manager
A native Texan who knows how to throw an amazing Flash fête, Fran knows how to have a good time...and looks fabulous while doing it. Her background in merchandising, design and event planning ensures that everything from our website to event set-ups are always ready for their close-up. She’s totally Fran-tastic!
Fran loves chilling with her fainting goat Daphne, has no shame in her game when it comes to her addiction to reality TV, Chardonnay and Pinterest. She is also a bit of an adventure-junkie and swimming with great white sharks is on her bucket list! Queue the Jaws music...
ERIN HARRELL // CUSTOMER SUPPORT LEAD
Erin is Flash Tattoos’ resident Magic 8 ball – if you have a question, just ask her and she will tell you the answer. A peppy babe with a heart of gold, Erin makes sure every Flashionista has an excellent experience each time they visit our website and need some help. She aims to please!
In her free time, Erin can be found exploring the Austin foodie scene, vacationing next door to Willie Nelson, and doting on her adorable kiddos.
