A typical day in my life includes…

waking up at 5 by a kitten ready to play, working out, sewing, eating, sewing, sewing, eating, fun with family or friends, bedtime.

I was born…

on the other side of the world, in a nice little country called Norway.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the weather. Ironically I’m not a winter person, so this all-year-summer suits me just fine.

I’m listening to…

a mix of new and old. A lot of M83, Låpsley, Sia, Lemaitre, Miike Snow and Alessia Cara. Lately I’ve been kind of hung up on 90’s classics though, they always bring back good memories.

My family…

is my support team – I don’t know how I would manage without them. Living so far away from them makes everything a little harder. Thank god for new technology.

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

my hubby. And possibly, hypothetically, Steve Carell as Michael Scott. I think that would be very amusing.

One thing I cannot live without…

Mmy sewing machine (if we’re thinking materialistically).

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a fashion designer. Ever since I can remember.

I’m inspired by…

other designers, street style, people who build something out of nothing.

The one person who motivates me is…

honestly, myself. For as long as I can remember I wanted to become a fashion designer, and even though a couple years went by where that dream was put aside for various reasons, I kind of feel like I’m finally living it again. I push myself everyday to achieve what I set out to do, and that’s how I move forward.

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

to bring people who are stuck in old ways of thinking into modern time. People have to acknowledge that everybody is different, and that that’s the beauty of it all.

The perfect day would be…

a sunny day spent with family and friends, filled with lots of laughter, love and good food.

My first job was…

working as a cashier in Norway’s probably busiest grocery store. Good times.

My favorite escape…

is running in nature with music on my ears, away from all distractions and stress factors. That’s how I clear my head and just let go of it all.

My life…

would have turned out so different if I didn’t make certain choices along the way. I think I’ve made the right ones so far.

I’m currently working on…

a capsule collection for Tucson Fashion Week 2016.

Always…

look at the positive things in life. Focusing on the negative will never get you anywhere.

Never…

give up. Cliché? Yes, but oh so true!

Favorite Quote…

Treat people the way you want to be treated.”

Biggest Dream…

to sit on a patio in my 80’s, looking back at life with no regrets.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

this list is longer than I would like to admit, but my number one is probably loud eating.
