What is unique that's not in your bio?
I consider myself a culture sponge. I absob, process and store every detail I read, listen to, eat, smell and take part in related to art, style, fashion, travel, food and more.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
I have created a list of my 10 most favourite destinations around the world to visit - twice. I'm almost done my second list.
How do you define cool?
Kool is what defines you. It's not pre-fab, its not dictated by the general public, and it is for sure not heard, noted and quoted in every media source available. Kool is your own hidden that you only let a couple other way kool people in on.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
My secret? Now would it be any fun if I shared it! Let's just say that active listening, reading and walking makes you a natural sponge.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
The new different amazing features on topics that you will never ever read about in mainstream press, but like the blue bet in the Devil Wears Prada, set the trend three seasons from now.
What is your favorite trend?
Jewellery as the ultimate accessory. Converse.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Talk about your find like your talking to your friends. It's that piece of news you HAVE to share with your inner circle or you will explode.
How do you reset to be creative?
No rituals, but rest,relaxation, walking in the hood, and asking questions when curious - like you did when you were 8 - always help.
What inspires or excites you?
Passion, Passion, Passion, Creativity, Energy, Commitment....and Passion
Predict something awesome for 2020?
We will laugh like there is no tomorrow, dance like no one is watching, and love like we've never loved before.
