Where are you from? 

North Carolina, a very small town called Hickory. It’s close to the mountains.

 

What brought you to New York City?

My parents met here, so ever since I was young I wanted to live in New York. I studied fashion and knew it was the right place to be if I wanted to really get serious about that.

 

Industry secret?

Never burn a bridge. I think the jobs and people I’ve met have lead to different relationships and opportunities. The position I have now is from a connection from my first internship. You never know, New York is so small.

 

Biggest challenge?

I think figuring out what I want to do, and narrowing it down to one specific job. I have done a little bit of everything in fashion, but that has helped me round out my abilities.

 

What do you love about your job?

I like styling and putting things together, whether its in fashion or décor. I would rather put something together that has already been created, rather than pulling something out of thin air. I’m very visual.

 

What's on your playlist?

I’m really into Kings of Leon lately, Abbot Brothers, and I have to admit I’ve been listening to a lot of country.

 

Words to live by?

Never take life too seriously
