Q:What would someone close to you describe as your best and worst traits?

Q:What was your most embarrassing moment?
At my senior prom, my strapless dress fell down and I was, for a minute, wearing only a bra on top. It was classic.
Q:What is an odd fact or talent you possess?
I'm talent possessed, that seems to be the general consensus. I've been an artist forever, and it's my life.

I admire Hamish Morrow, Hussein Chalayan, Alexander McQueen.
Q:What are your favorite fashion magazines?
Surface, Another Magazine, Nylon, and I-D.

Q:What are your favorite movies?

Q:If you could design an outfit for any living person, who would be your dream client and why?
Currently, my dream client would have to Bjork. She is, and always has been, years ahead of all of us in the world of fashion, music, and art. Her avant guarde work and style radiates from her; and I really don't think she minds what anyone else has to say about it. She is a true artist, and is one of the most expressive and innovative talents of our time. It would be an honor to add to her appeal.
