So I first discovered you through YouTube. I believe the first video I watched was your day with the Messy Heads! There’s something about your videos that has this element of nostalgia mixed with the idea of a perfect day (it just works so well.) When you pick up the camera and press record, do you have a vision of what you want the end result to be, or do you kind of just capture what you capture and create something after?
Thank you! Usually I try and record as much as I can without a vision in mind and it comes together when I’m editing it. The video’s that I have a vision for beforehand have a lot to do with a song that I’m really into at the time.
I can literally visualize the whole video in my head when I’m listening to a rad song.
Your style is really cool. It’s that perfect mix of laid-back with hints of the 70’s. What’s your relationship with fashion?
You are so sweet! Thank you! I die for any pieces (clothing/accessories) that scream 70’s! I’m absolutely in love with thrifting and finding unique pieces that I can incorporate into my neutral style.
What are the top 5 pieces you think are vital in your closet?
boyfriend jeans - converse - faux fur jacket - vintage band tee - black skinny jeans -
You’re in a rush to get out of the house, what are the necessities you take with you?
My basket filled with a bathing suit, journal, scarf, lip balm, hydro flask, and camera.
You’re vegan! I’m currently in the process of making my way into a plant based diet. What would you tell someone who is considering becoming vegan but isn’t sure?
I’d say DO YOUR RESEARCH! Watch documentaries, read up on benefits of eating a vegan diet and most importantly really think about what is important to you in this life.
Who are you listening to (musically) right now?
My girl RiRi haha Rihanna’s new album is so good!
I believe you’re based in California, so what is it about California that you think attracts so many young people?
Yea! I think it’s the easygoing vibes that California gives off. Also a lot of creative job opportunities!
Best advice you’ve ever received?
Do what you love, love what you do.
How do you feel about the term cool girl?
A cool girl in my eyes is somebody that loves herself and resonates a positive vibe!
What would you say your passion is? And how important do you think it is for people to follow that passion and fulfill it?
My passion is to document and film my life and spread the message that you do not need to follow society's standards to live a successful and happy life. I think it’s very important to do what you love and not get sucked into a lifestyle that is influenced onto you by others. I get so inspired by people that succeed in this world by just doing what they love. It gives me hope for this world.
What would you say in your opinion, is the hardest struggle girls are facing right now in our society?
Girls are easily taken advantage of by men. I see this in my day to day life. Whether it is getting talked down to or invading personal space. It breaks my heart. Currently learning to fight this issue myself.
So I feel like there’s a huge social stigma on social media, and whether it really is good or bad, what’s your opinion on it?
I think it’s good and bad. There’s always a ying and yang to everything in life. The younger generation are the ones getting affected by social media more so than my generation. This is because all they grow up learning IS social media… pretty sad but true. Our lives are slowly getting taken over by it. I believe that there is good in it as far as spreading awareness towards global issues. For example veganism!
Is there any person, film, piece of art, music, etc. that has influenced your film making?
OH YEA! Music is my main influence, I’ll link my Spotify down below!I’m also inspired by people in my life and on YouTube!
