1. You are the definition of a modern woman to me. Taking her talents across more than one field. Which one makes you most happy modeling, surfing, or music??
Thank you kindly! I just do what I love and put my heart into everything.. I think graphic design/video editing/web content is definitely where my passion really shines. I like the marketing aspects of my industry. The modeling side of things is fun, but it's just a job and I'm super thankful for it for sure. Surfing and music is where I get to let out all of my physical energy. I don't think I could have one without the other. 2. I still remember, the first magazine that made an impression on me as a kid Definitely Nylon and Foam Mag. I'm a big fan of what they're about. I've done a little work with Foam, and hopefully Nylon some day soon! 3. My high school years involved a lot of Getting grounded.. a lot. hahah my parents were pretty strict, but it was good for me. It shaped me to have boundaries and respect. I played a lot of music in my room.. Wrote a lot of songs.

4. Now I get to work with I'm super fortunate to work with a lot of really amazing companies. I'm on my second year with Billabong, recently started a new relationship with Spy Optic and Osiris Shoes. I've been with Nixon for about 4.5 years, Lost Surfboards and Taylor Guitars. So thankful for the continued support from those guys. It's nice to have a family. 5. I have a crush on Hahaha, life. ;) 6. I now live in I have a house in New Smyrna Beach, FL.. But I'm back and forth to CA quite a bit, along with other travels in between. 7. Did you think growing up in Florida you would be able to see the world? Not even for a second. I didn't come from a wealthy family, I didn't live near the ocean and where I'm from originally (Panama City, FL), doesn't have a lot of opportunity for growth. It's really difficult to make it out. I moved away at barely 16, to the east coast. I knew I wanted to do this for my living so I jumped in head first and never looked back.
8. What do you think about social media ? Oversaturation or an outlet? I think it has a lot of positive aspects, but equal amount of negativity. I recently read a study that kids who spend the most time on Facebook, are more likely to have depression. I think it's good for someone in my line of work, because it's instant and my sponsors/family can keep up with my travels and work productivity. 9. If you had to compare yourself to a women in the past who would it be? My Mother. She passed at 40 and she was very special to me, as well as an inspiring human-being. After her loss, I acquired quite a bit of her personality traits and views on life. It's been something that keeps me motivated and strong. 10. If you could leave us with one thought, what would it be? Life isn't a dress rehearsal ;).
