What were you doing when scouted? We actually went to a friend’s wedding at the Eldridge Hotel.

Describe your style: Slightly edgy, I guess, and comfortable too. I like to wear a lot of black on a budget! So it’s kind of hard to manage all of that together.

Fashion trends you love: I’m not into much fashion lately but I do like form-fitting stuff.

Fashion trends you hate: I’d say the “Little House on the Prairie”/bohemian chic is not my kind of thing. Like the cut-off mom shorts are not so good.

What type of music do you unwind to? I’m more in the electronic music scene. But to chill, I like Mamoosa and Pretty Lights.
