1. So for how long have you been building this amazing world that we know now?
I have been doing some form of what I am now for about 10 years. Which is so crazy to think about! A lot of my followers have grown up right beside me. It's an amazing bond to have people who are interested in your work and have stood by you through all your crazy ups and downs! 2. I still remember, the first magazine that made an impression on me as a kid was the Delia's catalog ha! Does that even count? As funny as it sounds I idolized those girls. I said one day I will be a model like them. They had that carefree energy about them I would tear out pages and hang them on my wall, they had the coolest style. 3. My high school years involved a lot of Yin and Yang. I was super into sports the first two years and the last two I was a BMX biker rebel who got kicked out and never graduated. The best of both worlds? High school is hell though. It really messed me up, I wouldn't wish high school on my worst enemy. I came from an academic family so dropping out was never an option so I had to get expelled.

4. Now I get to work with amazing creative inspirational people every single day. I never realized you can make the life you want. I always thought you had to be miserable and work a stupid job and hate your life. Caution: Expect to work your ass off, be told no and have countless doors slammed in your face- I never said it would be easy but it most certainly can be done for those with drive! 5. I have a crush on a lot of people ha! Im a free lover I love so many people for so many different reasons. 6. I now live in NYC and Philadelphia. I go back and forth a few times a week these days. I use to live in LA for 5 years and would never live their again. It's great for a week or two but it's not my style or people. Im must happier and free on the East Coast. LA to me is a lot of bullshit that I don't have the time or energy to entertain. 7. You are always who you are no exceptions. Does your up bringing have something to do with that? I guess it does. My mom was kinda nature hippy self expression women growing up. I grew up very creatively always doing crafts and making my own clothing. I think art is so important for kids. It's a way of true expression. All schools need a great art program more so then the fake history they shove down our throats to brain wash. Generation wake up.

8. What do you think about social media ? Over saturation or an outlet?   It can be both. Im actually trying to scale back. I get so much inspiration from it and im a knowledge hoarder I just want to read articles and studies all day. I love sharing fun images and photos with the world but it can be very addicting.
9 . If you had to compare yourself to a women (man) in the past who would it be?  This is about to sound very high horsed but let me explain ha! I would say Marilyn Monroe because of the fact she was a public figure but also a very misunderstood human as well. People judged her for who she was in the public and never looked past that. I think that's something I have struggled with for a long time. Just because I get hired to model or write about fashion does not mean im a single faceted person who isnt intelligent and educated on other topics. The internet can be your best asset or biggest curse. 10. If you could leave us with one thought, what would it be? Your outer world is a reflection of your inner mind.
