Where are you currently living and where do you call home?
I don’t live anywhere right now since I travel full-time (but I want to live in Santa Monica, California). I’d call Las Vegas home since that’s where I was born and raised.
What are some of your favourite travel destinations and why?
Two of my favourite travel destinations are Hawaii and Spain. I love Hawaii for the kind-hearted people and the magical beauty that engulfs the island no matter where you’re at. Spain because of the culture and love that’s shared amongst the genuinely cheerful people who love to drink and dance!
Destination(s) you have yet to visit that are on your travel list:
Places I haven’t been that I’m hoping to hit the last half of this year are Japan, Bali, Dominican Republic, and the Virgin Islands.
Most memorable travel experience?
My most memorable travel experience was flying to South Africa because I went into anaphylactic shock from eating nuts on the plane ride there! It was crazy, I thought I was going to die alone on a plane! But doing amazing charity work (helping locals with the drought) turned the trip around in a great way!
What’s a hidden gem that you’ve discovered through your travels?
The hidden gems that I’ve discovered throughout my travels have been those unique people I’ve met every place I’ve been. There’s always one person every trip I go on that distinctly impressed me, and I hold our memories dear, but I most likely don’t see them again since they’re locals. I plan on going back to every place I’ve been and seeing those people I connected with again.
Where do you get your style inspiration from?
I get my style inspiration from different people depending on what I’m doing. If I’m DJ’ing I pull inspiration from Alison Wonderland (female DJ extraordinaire). When it comes to modelling I pull inspiration from Alexis Ren. But on a day-to-day basis my style is pretty athletic looking since I grew up playing sports.
Favourite clothing brands?
I honestly couldn’t say I have a favourite clothing brand. I like shopping at places like Buffalo Exchange so I get unique pieces from many brands. But I love brandy Melville, Lululemon, Steve Madden, and street brands like R13.
What’s the best advice you’ve received?
The best advice I’ve ever received is “You can do anything you want, but YOU are the only one who’s going to get you there, and you have to believe in yourself.”
Plans for the future in terms of travelling and your career as an influencer/model?
There are lot of plans for the future, but right now the end goal is to model, DJ, help others with their creative passions, and make videos everywhere I travel. Music is on my mind!
How would you describe your Instagram “theme”?
I would describe my Instagram theme as “taking pictures of stuff I’m already doing” hahaha.
