1. How did you get into modeling?

I started getting serious about modeling last year after I went to my first fashion show as an influencer. I had always loved taking pictures of myself and posting on Instagram, but I never really knew how to get into the industry. I started watching America’s Next Top Model and actually learned a few tips and industry terms from the show. I got involved with events and started getting booked by designers and photographers for shoots and shows, and I have just kept pushing ever since I walked in my first show as the Face of the event about a year ago.

2. What are you doing if you are not modeling?

When I am not modeling you can find me singing, acting, or playing the piano or ukulele. I also love to play volleyball, spend most of my money shopping, and spend a lot of time at the beach. I am obsessed with anything and everything Disney which I will talk more about in the next question.

3. The most spontaneous/difficult/strange thing you’ve ever done?

I was a participant of the Spring 2020 Disney College Program which unfortunately ended early due to closures caused by COVID-19. After not getting in for three application periods, I decided to try one more time while I was in class one day. A few months later I got my acceptance email that said I would be working at Disneyland. After being reluctant to go, I packed up to move to California and ended up loving every minute of it. It was my first time being that far away from home, but the coolest part was finding a new home for myself with my new friends and the culture of California. I have always wanted to live in California to further pursue my passions for the entertainment industry, and I can’t wait until I am able to move back.

4. What’s your life motto?

I would say my motto is, “Be undeniably you and live with no regrets”. When my life flashes before my eyes I want to enjoy the show. Every year I come up with a word or phrase to live by. In 2019, that word was “yes”. I wanted to live life more and have the courage to go after my dreams. The goal of “yes” was simply to say yes to new things, yes to hanging out with my friends more often, yes to following my dreams. I honestly accomplished a lot having that mindset, and it has stuck with me during this year as well.

5. Describe your personal style – Favorite Brands/Fragrance?!

My style changes every day, and the outfit I will pick out really depends on what mood I am in. I would describe my most prevalent styles to be an elevated twist on the classic Californian beach boy. I am obsessed with 90’s TV shows so it probably stems from classic characters from shows like Saved by the Bell, 90210, and Baywatch. My favorite brands are Dior, Burberry, Yves Saint Laurent, Abercrombie and Fitch, Guess, Calvin Klein, and of course Ralph Lauren. My favorite fragrances are Ellwood by Abercrombie and Fitch, Socal by Hollister, and my Mother’s perfume, Beach by Bobbi Brown.

6. What genre of music best describes you?

70s/80s pop rock. The type of classic music you would jam to while driving with the windows down on a highway. The kind of music where you feel like the main character of your own Netflix original. I’m a very nostalgic person and the music from that era has always felt full of such heart and memory.

7. Where are your roots – The best thing about/to do in your hometown?

Besides breathing dust and feeling like you live in a hair dryer because the summers here are so hot, my favorite part of Glendale is the community. No matter where you go here you will run into someone you know or someone who knows you. Having people know who you are is something I love about Glendale, and I think that has contributed to my interest in the entertainment industry.

8. Name one celebrity you’d like to get naughty with!

Ok literally my biggest crushes have always been on celebrities. I got my start as an influencer after I gave Sabrina Carpenter flowers and a silly short love note backstage that went viral with her fans. Honestly, I would 100% marry Emma Watson. I basically watched her grow up with me from her time in Harry Potter to her role as Belle in Beauty and the Beast. She is extremely socially responsible, fashionable, and I would never pass up a British accent.

9. Do you have any special Talents?

I mentioned this before, but I love to sing and play the piano. Music and performing were a huge part of my childhood and still are even if it’s mainly in the shower. I would love to be able to keep that as a major focus in my life.

10. What is the most interesting thing online at the moment?

Two words, Doja Cat. I will never understand how she went from dressing up as a cow and writing a song about that to becoming a pop culture icon, but I am honestly here for it. I am of course biased for her recent nods to 70’s culture, but I hands down lover her unique sound and upbeat hits. I have played her 1920’s themed Billboard Music Awards performance on repeat since I saw it the first time. I would die to be in one of her music videos, they are extremely well executed.
