IF YOU COULD MAKE ONE WISH WHAT WOULD IT BE?
That I could eat all the junk food and sweets I wanted and still be a healthy/functional human.

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE TEENAGE JOB?
Teaching skate school at the local ice rink! As a figure skater I loved that job so much and I love kids so it was always something I looked forward to.

WHAT’S THE BEST OR WORST IDEA YOU’VE EVER HAD?
My best decision ever was choosing to go to Paris and Barcelona as my high school senior trip. It was the greatest experience of my life and talking about it now really makes me miss traveling internationally.

WHAT TV SHOW IS YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?
I can’t stop watching Pretty Little Liars. I’m a huge fan of all of these amazing shows with beautiful cinematography and storylines like Mad Men, Fargo, The Knick, Game of Thrones etc. and then there’s Pretty Little Liars. They really know how to reel you in!

WHAT’S YOUR WORST HABIT?
Bouncing my left leg when I’m sitting is a habit that I absolutely can’t kick. My mom has always hated it and still constantly gets on me for it. It’s just one of those nervous ticks I suppose, I don’t know. I can’t sit completely still unless I’m in yoga.

WHAT DO YOU DO TO CURE A DESIGN BLOCK?
I usually browse design blogs and Behance while listening to music to help my thoughts flow and gain some inspiration. Anything by The Flaming Lips or Aphex Twin will usually motivate me creatively and sometimes spending time outdoors helps.
