A typical day in my life includes…

a bike ride, a coffee, and morning emails. After that, I’ll hop into my studio to sew orders for about 3 hours. Spend a few more hours working on my website, planning photoshoots, or doing other business-related things (mostly marketing!). Lately, I’ve been playing around with Instagram’s AR program, Spark, to create promotional filters. At the end of the day, you’ll most likely
catch me playing some video games and/or having a nice meal with my beaux.

I was born…

in Natick, MA, but moved to Mesa before my first birthday.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is the rain. I’ve moved around the world, and the country, but I’ve never experienced the rain like Arizona’s (especially under a tin roof). The creosote smell, the monsoon’s, and that crisp lightning.

I’m listening to…

Mitski.

My family…

is a conundrum.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Georgia O’Keefe.

One thing I cannot live without…

my husband and my cat.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a fashion designer!

I’m inspired by…

people, but especially by people with passion who will do anything to make it happen.

The one person who motivates me is…

my husband. He is the one who convinced me to quit my full-time job at a corporate company and to pursue my dreams. Throughout our entire relationship, he has proved to motivate me time, and time again.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

the systematic oppression of women and POC throughout the world.

The perfect day would be…

sitting on my front porch with a cup of coffee with some good friends.

My first job was…

a hostess at a restaurant in East Mesa (no longer in operation).

My favorite escape…

swimming.

My life…

is a series of mysteries and ever-evolving chapters.

I’m currently working on…

brainstorming my next steps. I’m considering producing a local fashion show, or applying for fashion-related reality television shows, or collaborating with some cool people. The world is open.

Always…

be kind to yourself.

Never…

allow yourself to blindly hurt the ones you love.

Favorite Quote…

“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you…”

Biggest Dream…

to build my own home out in the Southern Arizona Desert.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

I love walking barefoot at home, but I can’t stand how dirty my feet get!
