What is unique that's not in your bio?
I used to make YouTube "vlogs" during my first year of university. I talked about things like disappointing pizza, Warped Tour and bizarre life experiences.
How do you define cool?
Anything that gets me excited!
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Refreshing sources constantly and finding new ones weekly. It gets tough trying to filter through the same websites to find something new, so switching it up and exploring a variety of categories really helps.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
I love the team, the positive work environment and the friendly competition amongst colleagues. Everyone here is challenged to grow and achieve goals beyond their own expectations. At Trend Hunter, everyone looks out for each other, supports each other and spurs one another on towards achieving their full potential.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Find something you're passionate about and go to town, remembering to use expressive and creative language. Using photographs helps you to go into detail about all the little things you love about the product, service or idea.
How do you reset to be creative?
Trying new things (like playing pool), deep conversations with friends and relaxing down time with my boo thang :P.
What inspires or excites you?
The future, space, travelling, landscape and city photography, food blogs, ice cream, great people, live music, new books, movie trailers, deep talks, God.
