IF THERE WERE NO BARRIERS AND CONSTRAINTS, WHAT PROJECT WOULD YOU WANT TO WORK ON?
I would love to design for a new major beauty brand. I am a product photographer, designer, and beauty lover, and I would love to combine my love for all three into a new innovative beauty brand.
WHAT ARE YOU READING/LISTENING TO/WATCHING?
I listen to a lot of podcasts while I work. My favorite is What We Said by Chelsey Curtis and Jaci Smith. I am currently reading Dune for the first time after loving the 2021 film. Lastly, I just started watching the series Yellowstone.
WHO IS SOMEONE YOU LOOK UP TO IN YOUR FIELD?
I look up to Julia Fernandez (2021 GDUSA Student To Watch). She is a new designer who is documenting her journey from student to professional designer in a vulnerable and informative way in her YouTube web series #DesignDiaries. Julia inspires me to push my concepts and be vulnerable as a designer.
