Where do you draw inspiration from?
My business partner – she’s an incredible designer and helps me hone my aesthetic.
Favorite creative hobby, outside of design?
A friend recently got me back into sculpey clay so probably going to keep playing around with that.
What advice would you give to your 20-something self?
I’m still in my 20’s so if anyone has any advice, hook a sister up! Just kidding but for real, I always tell anyone younger than me that it’s totally cool to not know exactly what you want to do or who you want to be, as long as you’re always hustling towards something.
