Can you walk us through a typical day in your life?
“Well, a typical day for me consists of creating, of any sort really. Music fills my head and heart heavily. Art is something that has been a huge part of my life since before i can remember, so I make it a daily goal to create something new, whether that be a song or a video or a poem. I love to be active, especially living in L.A. There are so many incredible hikes and places to move your body. It feels good to ground myself in the soil of the mountains and break a sweat...helps me get away from the chaos of the city. I have a beautiful group of friends that I enjoy spending my time with so a good day always consists of seeing them. I also love to cook, so find me in the kitchen cookin’ up a meal for my bandmates.”
Who (or what) inspires you and why?
“Living and growing up in Los Angeles has been a major inspiration for me ever since I was a kid. It has an essence to it that keeps me in a neverending state of awe. From the people to the scenery to the day and night work flow. I love it. Another big inspiration to me would be my friends. We push each other and lift each other up but also put out a little tough love. They keep me sane and inspire me constantly. I also find a lot of inspiration in my alone time. Giving myself personal goals and grounding myself with meditation and isolation is super important to me and creates fluid happiness in me bringing all of my visions to life.”
Since you're featured in our "How We Play" campaign, how do you play in your own life?
“Playing for me consists of many things. I enjoy being outdoors, whether it’s playing volleyball or softball with my friends on the weekend, or making a picnic and laying in a park. It also consists of playing music and unwinding in the studio with my band mates. I love nighttime in L.A. so going out and dancing with friends is another way I play.”
How would you describe your own personal style?
“My personal style is ever-changing. I am in a band with two boys, so I tend to wear lots of their clothes: leather jackets, t-shirt’s, oversized jeans. But I also love being girly. I love vintage clothing and accessories. Heels and sneakers. Being comfortable, and a little extra sometimes too.”
What are your 3 favorite American Apparel styles?
“I’ve been a fan of American Apparel for a long time so this is a hard question since I love it all. My current favorites are the classic High Waist Jeans, The Storm Classic Trench… and any of the matching sweatsuits. They’re all sooo good, and the comfiest thing you’ll ever wear.”
