Who are you and what do you stand for?

I’m a woman trying to make the most of the gifts and opportunities I have.


Who in your life was the most influential in leading you to become the person you are today?

My father. He was endlessly supportive and encouraging of my dreams, even though it seemed to take forever for me to figure out what I wanted to do with my life.


Describe your personal style.

Sexy glam meets fun and quirky.


Who or what inspires/motivates you?

I’m inspired by the successes and failures of women I consider peers. There is a lot of negativity around millennials, but I love how creative, energetic, spontaneous and innovative men and women in my age group or younger can be.  

What is your morning/night routine?

When my alarm goes off I roll over and spend about10 minutes checking my notifications and doing some light stretches. Then I pour a huge glass of lemon water, open the curtains and blinds to flood my space with natural light, and start getting ready. I almost always make a fresh breakfast and eat at home while watching the morning news before popping on a Spotify playlist and heading out. Before bed I always thoroughly remove my makeup and prep my hair depending on how I plan to wear it the following day. At around 10:30pm I silence all my notifications except the phone ringer and get in bed with a book or magazine, (and sometimes a bourbon neat). I like to disconnect for a bit before falling asleep.    


If you came home one day and your living room is filled from floor to ceiling with pineapples what would you do?

I love pineapples so I’d eat as many as possible, then donate the rest to local shelters and food pantries.


Who are the top 3 people you follow on social media and why?

Travel Noire, because I love their content, but also what the company stands for, The Hungry Gentleman because his food pics are sick, and Pantone for color inspiration.


How do you maintain work/life balance?

It’s a challenge, but I make it a point to prioritize what I need – whether that’s catching up on workouts, being there for a friend, or relaxing at home binge watching natural hair tutorials on YouTube.


What are some of the causes you stand for?

I’m vehemently pro-choice and it scares me to see how women’s rights to control their bodies has been eroded in the past few years. I also believe global internet connectivity is going to emerge as a human rights issue and giant tech companies like Facebook are already exploring ways to address this.


Tell us about an embarrassing moment?

I actually can’t remember one! I’m not someone who easily gets embarrassed.


What is your favorite store to shop at and why?

Revolve.com! They have amazing pieces, really inspirational content, and top notch customer service.
