1. What is something not too many people know about you?
Not many people know that I have a hemangioma in my left forearm. It’s basically a nest of blood vessels intertwined with the radius and ulna bones. They couldn’t take it out with fear that’ll I’ll lose the use of my left arm. When I had growth spurts growing up the vessels it would clinch around the bones making my forearm go numb. It was pretty painful.
2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?
For a large part of my life, music was my biggest passion. I actually have a clarinet performance degree and still have an interest in building my skills on alto sax and flute. I also love writing, but haven’t gotten into a groove for sometime. Currently, I have a strong interest in modeling, but I’m mostly just seeing where the wind takes me.
3. What are your goals for the future?
I want to get to a place where I feel like, “yes, this is right at this moment in time”. And maybe I'm in that right now but don't realize it. To be honest, a major goal of mine is to have more good days than bad. I feel like most of us in our twenties relate to aimlessly wandering or feeling like we’re just going through the motions. We ultimately change our goals every 5-7 years anyway, because we're different people then. and as someone with many interests and ideas I often times feel like I have to give myself time to experience each thing. But a steadfast goal I have at the moment is to be able to travel more frequently.
4. What is your definition of success?
Success for me would be getting to a place where I’m doing something that I love while being able to live my life without too much compromise. I want to have my cake and eat it too.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're working on.
There’s a few concepts that I’d like to execute throughout the year. I really like vintage looks, one of which is being shot this week so stay tuned to that.
