A typical day in my life includes…

Barre, jewelry, music, and my dog, Dio.

I was born…

To keep moving forward.

My favorite thing about Arizona… 

Is the beautiful desert landscapes, the sunrises and sunsets.

I’m listening to…

the new Gorillaz album.

My family…

is interesting…we should probably leave it at that.

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

Shaun Leane, his jewelry is amazing and I would love to hear about how it was to work with Alexander McQueen!

One thing I cannot live without…

Cold brew, it’s pretty much my life blood.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

Indiana Jones, or at least a female version.

I’m inspired by…

Contrast! Travelling back and forth between California and Hungary as a kid definitely exposed me to a ton of visual and cultural contrasts, which really shaped my aesthetic.

The one person who motivates me is…

My mom.

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

I know I’m going to sound like a total hippie, but to end the practice of treating animals, people, and nature as objects to use. These are all living beings that should be respected.

The perfect day would be…

Spent creating art.

My first job was…

As a clerk in a wine store.

My favorite escape…

Barcelona.

My life…

Is kind of like that Rihanna song…”work, work, work, work, work”, but I feel really lucky to be able to work on building my brand full time.

I’m currently working on…

Too many things, but the new Fall/Winter collection is the definitely the most exciting part.

Always…

Be kind, be grateful, be willing to help.

Never…

Sacrifice your core values.

Favorite Quote…

“Profits are a product, not a purpose”.

Biggest Dream…

Is to leave a lasting and positive mark in the jewelry industry and one day help launch to the next generation of amazing jewelry designers.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

Loud chewing, littering.
