So I am originally from Maryland, but I’ve really lived all over the place: in Europe, Guam, Hawaii, a bunch of different states. Kind of a nomad. I’m a nomad so the hardest question is, “where are you from?”

Beauty product you couldn’t live without?
I cannot live without these freeze tools from Georgia Louise. And they just roll in your face every morning and they’re the best thing in the entire world. I tell everybody to buy them. Keep them in your freezer, roll your face in the morning.

Currently, I am working on trying to come out with a lounge wear resort wear line. That’s coming soon.

My spirit animal is a sloth. They’re just tired and always chilling. They like being alone, they sleep, they’re cute, they have long nails. My spirit animal.
