Describe your style in 5 words or less.
Boisterous, intrigued, creative, funny, sensitive
Do you prefer being in front of or behind the lens?
That's a hard one, lately I've been enjoying being behind the camera... but I definitely go through phases all the time
Who are your top Girl Crushes?
I've always adored Lara Stone and Abbey Lee Kershaw. They're so effortless with their style and attitude, they don't give a fuck and stay in their own lane while killing the game!
Where do you draw inspiration from?
Music!! Music is what inspires me the most. Even while I'm shooting I HAVE to play music or else I'm not that hyped or motivated. I also draw inspiration from experiences and feelings sometimes when I'm the most down and upset I'll just sit in my room, play some Jeff Buckley, and read all my old magazines and fashion books that I've collected over the years.
Favorite places to hang out in LA?
I'm such a homebody! I never ever go out, but my favorite place to hangout would have to be any park out here with cool scenery like Griffith park! I've shot there a bunch and wondered around with my boyfriend many times
Any beauty tricks you want to share?
I don't really wear makeup that much because I'm basically the least girly girl you'll ever meet when it comes to all the that. But I do love using bag balm on my lips when they're chapped, I also use this rose water mist spray from Glossier before I go to bed and after I wash my face in the mornings!
What's next for you?
What's next for me? Well I just got signed with Ford LA and NY so I'm hoping to stay busy with my modeling career and travel while doing that, I'm making a trip out to New York within the next month or two.. My goal is to walk in NYFW this September as well as staying busy with my photography. I hope to keep creating and really just surround myself with genuine, honest people that only want the best for one another.
