    What are you working on right now?
    Besides my modeling career I am currently working on my website, which will feature my artwork, lifestyle, and will feature other fellow models and artists that I cross paths with during my creative journey. 

    What is your relationship with fashion? How do you see fashion intersect with art in how you dress / create work?
    My relationship with fashion is unconventional. To me fashion is art, another form to express myself without words; wearable art. 

    My personal style is inspired by my parents, 70s Glam, Japanese Pop, and a twist of 90s punk.  I am drawn to floral patterns, vintage 70s blouses with bell sleeves, easy to wear dresses, and definitely off the shoulder blouses.  I love mixing it up, whether it's all black to a satin blue or pink.

    Describe a dream day in Los Angeles for you (real or imagined!)
    My dream day in beautiful Los Angeles is skydiving, overlooking the Hollywood sign, and then afterward taking a cruise to Malibu for a bonfire and party with friends. 

    What music are you into right now?
    Right now I'm listening to classic late 90s-early 2000s R&B and alternative rock. For example: Aaliyah, Missy Elliot, Alanis Morissette, and Portishead. I recently found this amazing new artist Sevdaliza.  She's new, and has these amazing cyber visuals.  

    What are you reading right now?
    Right now I am reading Lady Chatterley's Lover, which I just realized is on the top 10 list of “banned books.”

    What’s your mantra?
    "Be Present.” It's not easy…but a reminder to be aware, thankful, and live in the moment. 

    What are 3 other things you’re loving right now?
    1. Minimalist architecture
    2. Pho
    3. Game of Thrones
