What’s your background? How does your background influence your path in life?
I went to school for Fashion Merchandising and Design. While in school, I got into an entertainment troupe named Couture Productions where there were models, dancers, artists, singers, poets, and more! This organization taught me a lot of the behind the scenes of fashion shows while being a model and a dancer for some years. Yes, I do it all. I took the education of my major and the entertainment troupe and decided to start modeling throughout college and even after college. I realized that I enjoyed seeing other people behind the lens a little more, which is how I got more and more into styling. I worked in retail for a long time and decided I needed to get into positions where I could style others and learn more about body types, working with various personalities, and just getting more practice in. My most recent search for real work in the fashion world landed me a styling job at Trunk Club, where I get to style men and women of various age ranges, styles, and budgets. This is where I get to be surrounded by other creatives and clients that I would have otherwise never met. Before I forget, I also DJ which I’ve talked about for YEARS! A friend actually reminded me of how I talked about it with so much passion some years ago but they didn’t believe me and here I am about 9 months in booking gigs, playing music that makes me and others feel good. It is the BEST FEELING EVER! It’s always scary before a show but once I get into it, it’s sooo much fun!
