Hometown: I was born in Torrance, Calif., but I grew up in Parker, Colo.
How do you get your creative inspiration? I find my inspiration from colors. When I can’t make sense of anything, color is what both fuels and grounds my creative process. I also love to work with my hands, and sometimes I just need to go dancing.
Best piece of advice you’ve ever received? To be authentically yourself, and dance through life.
Best book you have ever read? It is a tie between “The Hating Game” and “A Little Life.” They are polar opposites. “The Hating Game” is perfect in its over-the-top chick-flick glory, and “A Little Life” destroyed me in a way no other literature ever has.
What time of day are you most productive? I am most productive at about 7:30 in the morning, especially if I get some reading in before then.
What is your most-used emoji? 😈
