Paige Bluhdorn's Facebook profile


Our Founder and CEO, Paige Bluhdorn, is a native New Englander from the smallest state in the US, Rhode Island. At an early age Paige ventured to Manhattan to dance at the School of American Ballet. Little did she know she would grow too tall to enter into a ballet company and instead used her height of 5'10" to start walking the runway. With the likes of Iman & Linda Evangelista, Paige was doing photo shoots and commercials in the fast paced modeling world during the 1980s for clients such as Chanel, Giorgio Armani and Valentino . This spelled out travel, travel, travel.

More captivated by looking out of a viewfinder, Paige has not been able to put a camera down since the age of 19.  A fascination with the world around her lead Paige to explore North Vietnam on a photo essay assignment.  Remembering to keep somewhat grounded during this era, Paige invested in a restaurant on NYC’s Upper East Side not far from famous literary hang out Elaine's. "I learned a lot from the restaurant business and have more respect for those who create the right ambiance, food and wait staff, which is why I like to applaud the establishments we feature on"  To let us know about your business in the Dominican Republic, write to us at


Other motivations for founding are her passion for the arts and promoting artists, whether in the areas of the culinary arts, fine arts, fashion design, music, and more. Paige thoroughly enjoys exploring and sharing new experiences with people, listening to what they think and learning new and interesting ideas. "My vision for is to explore, share and exchange information and to promote not just the places but also people throughout the Dominican Republic.” For Paige, it's exciting to present the talents and uniqueness of others;  artists who want to share their work should send images to
