If I had a billion dollars I would probably spend it all on Diet Coke. The addiction is too real.”

Who is your style icon?

"Lady Gaga. I grew up studying her style evolution and watched her fashion choices get filtered through the industry while shifting culture throughout the years."

How did you get in to the industry?

"I would take on anything that came my way. I started organizing charity events in high school and later applied those skills to work backstage at a Jason Wu fashion show. Around this time Jason Wu had been dressing Michelle Obama so I remember being really grateful for that opportunity. That was my first big step into the fashion world"

Top hobby outside of this industry?

"Acquiring new experiences. I love attending concerts of various genres or trying out a new restaurant/bar."
