T-shirts can be all things to people, from a status symbol to a memory trigger.What do they represent to you?
I think T-shirts represent simplicity. I always used to wear oversized ripped T-shirts when I was younger, and I remember the freedom and simplicity of childhood whenever I wear them now.

Do you recall your first favorite T-shirt?
Yes, it was a faded yellow T-shirt that had the band Queen’s logo on it. My father always used to blast Queen in my household when I was younger.

How would you describe your style?
My style is pretty tomboyish. I love ripped jeans and shorts. When I do decide to wear dresses or skirts, I tend to wear an oversized men’s jacket or sneakers with it.

What inspires you?
Nature is pretty inspiring to me. The Earth is so triumphant and beautiful if you really take time to look at it!

What do you most like about your line of work?
Traveling and meeting people around the world. I love experiencing new things.

What’s next?
Back to New York City for me and we will see where it goes from there!
