  • If I could pick two people to have dinner with, dead or alive, they would be: One would be Jimi Hendrix, he is my all time favorite artist, I have a huge love of classic rock and there’s no one else like him. The other would be Anna Wintour, she is the commander in chief of fashion, need I say any more?!


  • My favorite thing to do on a Friday night is: Go to a concert with my best friends!


  • The best compliment I’ve ever received was: That when I walk into the room its like sunshine on a cloudy day. Almost made me cry!!

  • My most embarrassing moment is: I was backstage meeting an artist after a concert, post facial, completely makeup-less, and my face looked blotchy and red like I’d lost a fight. Soooooo embarrassing. But I just put on some lipstick and went with it. 😉


  • The most important lesson in life I’ve learned is: Always try to see things from another’s point of view, you don’t know what someone is going through, so always be conscious of people.


  • My favorite thing about my job is: I get to shop for a living and create an entire mood for a photoshoot!!


  • The best gift I’ve ever received was: Super tough….. I would have to say either my dog Buddy from my parents, or these silver and turquoise bracelets given to me by my grandma which had been a gift to her from my grandfather who has passed away.


  • My favorite store is: Zara, you can find anything there, so many designers actually celebrate the fact that clothing inspired by their designs are available to everyone now!!
