Q What work type pays the bills?
I am working from 9-5, but as a freelance photographer, stylist, branding strategist. As an artist, you are always hustling. So every day I wake up knowing I’m going to work of some sort, it’s just a little more unpredictable (I like to say “exciting”) than most people’s 9-5 work day.
Q What are 3 things you can’t live without?
Internet, Ramen, and HBO.
Q What are 3 things you can live without?
Donald Trump, freezing weather, and tomato juice. Yuck.
Q If you can have 3 wishes granted, what it be?
I wish for my daughter to have a great, memorable childhood, I wish for a permanent vacation house in Maui (normal wish right?), and I wish for a bank account that just fills itself up when it’s feeling low.
Q One word expression that describes your persona and why?
Eccentric. Because I do way too many unexpected jobs and projects. From filming face lift surgeries to rap videos, to doing wedding makeup, to writing music- I’ve done alot of weird off beat things.
Q One thing people wouldn’t expect from your background
How many countries I traveled to as a kid. That number is around 22 – 23
Q Who is your rock star hero?
Stevie Nicks of course
Q What would be a song title that sums up today’s society
“Look What We’ve Done”
Q If you can have a beer with two people, who would it be
Well, actually it would be vodka because I’m allergic to beer (haha). But I would have to say, Oprah, because the woman is a queen and I’d love to pick her brain. And also, Seth Rogan. Firstly, because I have a crush, but mostly I don’t like having cocktails with people who aren’t entertaining.
