1. What is something not too many people know about you?
Growing up, I was horrible at school. I have dyslexia and multiple other learning disorders that I struggled with from kindergarten to high school (and still now!) It made me rely on visually explaining and communicating things vs. doing so with words. I think as frustrating as it was in school to have learning disabilities, I've now acquired so many strengths through my weakness.
2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?
Photography, first and foremost. It's my job, but also my passion. I also love to paint with oils and watercolor with a good documentary on in the background. Also, my 60 lb. of fluff, Tucker my dog. How can you not be passionate about that?
3. What are your goals for the future?
I have a "hit list" of companies I want to work with before I die. Shoot a campaign for Madewell, travel with a Personality for fashion week, start my own product line, the list goes on and on. Ultimately, I want to continue to work hard but also have work-life balance. I think that's the most profitable goal, to not make my work my everything.
4. What is your definition of success?
To wake up, eager for your day, happy with who you're laying next to (or not next to, for that matter), with your well of creativity never running dry. Work is important, but so are the people you surround yourself with to celebrate with.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're currently working on.
I'm working with North America's best men's hair stylist currently, building her brand and reach. I love working on a team where we get to bounce ideas off each other and dream of projects together. We are about to travel to different cities around the US to connect with models, agencies and brands doing collaborative shoots. I can't wait to meet, work and shoot all these different personalities all under the category of editorial hair work. It's going to be quite the year.
