On why she chose this path. “Photography is my first love, and it sparked an interest in creating not only from behind the camera, but from the front. From there, I began to create and model.

On the best way to spend a Saturday. “My perfect day would be waking up rested in my Brooklyn apartment and running downstairs to the first floor to grab a latte from Hearts Cafe. Creating is my favorite thing to do, so I’d definitely have a Breather booked to shoot some looks. Before heading home to end the day, I’d stop by Joe’s Shanghai for some yummy dumplings.”

On her top tip for curly-haired ladies. “Always sleep with a satin or silk scarf to cut down time needed to fix your hair. This helps you preserve your curls and keep them protected while you sleep.”
