1. What is something not too many people know about you?
I was diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a baby and learned to walk through intense physical therapy. Doctors told my parents I'd never be able to walk; little did they know, that comment is probably what set off a (really annoying) life-long need to prove others wrong. I don't tell many people about my cerebral palsy because today I only struggle with fast-twitch movements and mind-muscle connection, but it's something that pushes me to get out of my own way and reminds me that I am unstoppable.
2. What are your biggest passions?
Dogs, percussion, art, babies, powerlifting, personality test results, and getting 10 hours of sleep every night. I'd be a horrible blogger because I'd never be able to pick one specific niche.
3. What are your goals for the future?
Goal-setting is something that's really difficult for me because my interests are all over the place; one week I'm dead set on creating a new training cycle for powerlifting, and the next I'm watching tutorials every night trying to learn as much as I can about editing with Lightroom. That said, a short term goal of mine is to transition to veganism and a (very) long term goal is to pay off my student loan debt.
4. What is your definition of success?
Success is knowing you're as good of a person as your dog thinks you are.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're working on.
First and foremost, my current and most urgent project is (a) find a new dream job, preferably very soon so I can (b) figure out where and when I'm going to move. Not my favorite kind of project, but a project nonetheless. Apart from that, I dove into modeling at the beginning of the year but I'm hoping to start doing my own shoots and make the shift from model to photographer; pursuing photography has been a back burner dream of mine for as long as I can remember.
