To start things off, please tell us a little bit more about you and where you come from?
I grew up in Orange County (in Rancho Santa Margarita, California) and went to Azusa Pacific University to major in Business Management and a minor in Fine Arts. I currently live near Los Angeles in a house with three other housemates. Living with them has been such a wonderful experience and they are so kind to basically turn the living room and kitchen into my own little art studio. I have also turned my room into an art studio which is where I take most of my photos.
Tell us how a typical day in your life looks like – do you have any rituals that you can’t live without?
I wish I had more of a structure to my everyday life. To be honest, I have been trying to set a more strict workout routine and sleep schedule, but so many new things seem to keep coming my way that it becomes hard to get into a routine. I have a planner where I set general goals for the week and daily goals to achieve and stick to that. I also workout two to five times a week because I believe physical wellbeing is very important and affects every aspect of my business. I also usually see my boyfriend every day or every other day depending on his work schedule. We do a lot of work together in content creation for clients and for our own brands. To kind of get back to the question, I think my rituals are morning coffee (a must).
Tell us a bit more about your carrier.
When was the first time you decided that you want to work as an artist and content creator?
During my senior year studying at APU, I got an internship at a Media Marketing company in Santa Monica (basically an agency that connects macro-influencers to companies and runs the campaign). After graduating, that turned into a job where I learned a lot about campaign running. More importantly, I learned that it is possible to make a very good amount of money via Instagram which really excited me. Working at this startup also let me realize that influencer marketing is not going anywhere but in fact going to be the next big thing when it comes to marketing. So I realized that now was my time to capitalize on that and start working for myself. I also started taking my art business more seriously which has been hugely rewarding.
How did Social Media change your way of working and getting in contact with clients and your followers?
