About Us


(KĀ ÄS) is a homegrown candle company based in Houston, Texas and Los Angeles, California. Each candle is hand-poured and features a sophisticated scent with a unique message. Our candles are crafted to fit both masculine and feminine energies and use only the highest quality ingredients.

As someone who always struggled with self-doubt and confidence, I want to inspire others on a more intimate and personal level. If you feel lost, lack confidence, or are dealing with life’s challenges, I want you know change is possible and it starts with self-belief.

My upbringing was a bit different than most. At age fifteen my family moved to Singapore, where I attended an American high school. At age 18, I made the decision to begin a career in modeling. Here I learned persistence and never taking no for an answer can dramatically alter one’s circumstance in life for the better.

Like many, I always felt a little lost understanding my true calling. I was turned down job after job until one day it hit me: follow your heart and create the career you love for yourself. That’s when I decided to start my own company. (KĀ ÄS), pronounced chaos, is a reflection of my life’s journey.

I hope to inspire anyone fearing risk or rejection, to follow their intuition, and to believe in themselves. It’s up to you to become the person you want to be. My hope is our candles remind you that hard work, self-care, and persistence can take you one step closer to your dreams.

Thank you for taking the time to be part of our family.
