Leslie Dapper
 Lead Designer | leslie@rumordesigns.com

 While spending her early childhood in Europe, her unique exposure to her grandparents antique business in Holland combined with her parents own art collecting habits, sparked her imagination at an early age.

She went on to create her own firm, but ultimately missed the synergy and comradery found when working as part of a team. She joined Rumor Designs as a Lead Designer in 2013.
