Launi is the third eldest of six children, raised in Pasadena, California by her Motown hitmaker-turned-pastor father and mother, an author. Launi has worked as a designer and product development executive for multiple entertainment studios learning how products reflect different cultures in each creative role.

When asked to design a Disney Ultimate Princess doll, Launi excitedly chose Disney’s first African American Princess, Tiana. Inspired by their shared passion for cooking, Launi recalled how she and her father would prepare seafood gumbo for hundreds of people every year. It is a recipe that connects mixed cultures so prevalent in New Orleans. Launi also embraces Tiana’s kindness, her giving heart, passion, resourcefulness, imagination, and beauty.

When Launi first saw The Princess and the Frog, she had to know more about the inspiration for Tiana’s character. She interviewed Rob Edwards, one of the film’s screenwriters, and confirmed that Leah Chase, an African-American Creole chef, helped shape Tiana’s story. Born in the 1920s, the same decade as the film’s setting, Leah later became an activist during the civil rights movement. Together, Launi, Princess Tiana, and Leah embody strength, channeling their passion through their cooking and entrepreneurship.
