Singing, art, fashion, and films. They define my life. Mix in good food, friends, and love and I'm complete.

With one last year of film school to go, I'm wasting most of free time getting inspired online - or eating what inspires me... #paleopancakes #vegandesserts #ilovefood #ohmy
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I'm a world traveler and have been since the age of six. While all of my friends were staying at the most coveted resorts in Cuba or Florida, I was stuck traveling through the temples of Oaxaca (pronounced Wa-Ha-Ka), Mexico, trekking Machu Picchu with a bunch of spiritualists, and later, when I turned 13, smoking hookah with the Whirling Dervishes in Turkey. I was born in the 90s. I'm from a small town. And this just didn't sit well with my Catholic school teachers. But! It did leave me with a whole new respect for our world and culture, which I am eternally grateful for.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Learning to cook. I no longer eat out every night!
How do you define cool?
Anything that you can't shake from your mind and leaves you with the desire to recreate or readapt into something of your own.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Being curious. I am always looking to discover or be exposed to new ideas or experiences on and offline.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
Trend Hunter has no boundaries in content exposure.
What is your favorite trend?
Puking Plushie Ads! It is somehow cute... <3
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Stick to what you're interested in and don't over think the process.
How do you reset to be creative?
It's a coin toss - I either re-watch the X-files or go to a yoga class.
What inspires or excites you?
A good story. Bold prints. Graphic illustrations.The perfect dessert.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
Generation Y will emerge onto the world stage and transform global politics.
