A typical day in my life includes…

going to yoga, working in my home studio and a glass of red wine at the end of the day.

I was born…

in Toronto, Canada.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is the colors! I love all the reds and oranges but I also love the popularity of turquoise and the contrast it creates! It’s really unique to this part of the country.

I’m listening to…

a lot of electronic music, mostly drum and bass.

My family…

is my biggest support system, but they also challenge me in ways that help me grow.

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

the Dalai Lama. I have read many of his books and seen him speak live and his opinions and intellect have always resonated very deeply with me.

One thing I cannot live without…

music! It has such a beautiful way of invoking deep emotions.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a diplomat. I have always had a passion for travel and connecting cultures!

I’m inspired by…

music! My passion for dance and movement is driven by my love for music! These things play a huge role in the style and functionality of the clothing I design.

The one person who motivates me is…

my mom. She really has built herself from the ground up and keeps growing and challenging herself. She is also the most selfless person I know as well as the most nurturing. If I grow up to be even a fraction of what she is I will consider my life successful.

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

the way people view the value of life, both human and everything else. I feel like the world has lost a lot of compassion and I would like to be part of the movement that brings that connection back to us.

The perfect day would be…

a sunny day started with hot yoga, followed by brunch with friends, some time in the studio making new clothes, then a night of dancing to drum and bass!

My first job was…

working at the smoothie chain, Robeks!

My favorite escape…

is literally escaping. I really love to travel and see places I’ve never seen!

My life…

is a beautiful adventure!

I’m currently working on…

becoming the most authentic version of myself and not compromising that for anyone or anything.

Always…

let go.

Never…

give up.

Favorite Quote…

“Peace and blessings manifest with every lesson learned, if your knowledge were your wealth then it would be well earned”. – Erykah Badu

Biggest Dream…

to go to every country on Earth!

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who “talk the talk” but don’t “walk the walk”.
