Married/ single: I am not married but I do have a significant other in my life

Kids: Not yet!

City you live in: Chandler

A typical day in my life includes…

working at Sunglass Hut, eating a salad from Paradise Bakery, working out, frequent dance parties throughout the day with myself and adventures!

I was born…

in Colorado.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is the old history it came from. Arizona makes for a really good place to get connected with some true art.

I’m listening to…

my heart as I’ve always done things for other people gladly, though now it is my time to pursue a few dreams of my own.

My family…

I could not live without. My mom is absolutely my best friend and we are a crazy bunch of people.

If I could have dinner with anyone it would be…

with a group of the world’s leaders. I can’t possibly pick just one person with there being so many inspirational and powerful souls out there, so I’d have to say just with a group of some of the worlds best leaders.

One thing I cannot live without…

is music, it is what energizes my spirit. Everyday I connect with emotions of others throughout my day with music.

When I was younger…

I wanted to be a professional basketball player.

I’m inspired by…

art in everyday life. I like to look at what can be seen with the naked eye, and I challenge myself to see more. To create more of a masterpiece then what is seen from first glance is my objective.

The one person who motivates me is…

my mom.

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

the rules and guidelines of self expression brought on by our society. We are taught to conform, to blend, to act “normal”, and to just do what is accepted by society. Boundaries are meant to be pushed in order to keep traveling into this world of art and beauty but we can’t run free when self-expression is limited.

The perfect day would be…

a spontaneous road trip to Malibu to have a day in the sun and in the waves with friends.

My first job was…

at Aldo shoe store in the Chandler Fashion Center.

My favorite escape…

is taking a long drive with my windows down and music blaring without a care of where I’m headed.

My life…

is a roller-coaster of ups and downs, full of spontaneous moments and I am grateful for every second of it. Through obstacles and the many challenges that I have faced, I am able to be a stronger person for others.

I’m currently working on…

a new philosophy for myself as far as how I plan to go through each day. I’m working on a new way to embrace each day and I’m creating new ideas to help positively govern my life and others around me.

Always…

be open to taking chances and taking risks for it is through risks and uncertainty that we find ourselves.

Never…

tell yourself you aren’t good enough for what you want in life. If you can think about what your desires are, then the plan to gain those things is already in motion. Truly believe in the power of your own mind.

Favorite quote…

“time is always too short for those who need it, but for those who love, time is forever”

Biggest dream…

my biggest dream is to create a new culture for people to live by. One where being loving, artistic, passionate, expressive, and kind is celebrated.

Pet peeves…

hearing people chew gum!!! Haha.
