Share with us the earliest memory of when you fell in love with fashion and when you knew you would make a career out of it?

I wouldn’t say it’s an early memory, but it would have to be my 2020 dollskill campaign. Just the fact that the items that I made sell out in 30 minutes. They had been on sale already before my pictures had been released for a couple months.That feeling let me know if I can make someone else’s brand sell out, why not put the same energy and effort in my very own brand.

Walk us through the day and details around your first major booking! What was the entire process like, and what’s one thing you may have done differently in retrospect?

It’s so crazy because me and my friend poetic drugs were sitting in the house getting ready to go somewhere when he got a dm from saucy. I remember it like it was yesterday. He asked my friend to be in the video. I was literally just tagging along to support my friend. The director for Saucy Santana’s video loved my outfit and asked if I wanted to be in it. I said sure why not and everything after is literally history now.

You made major moves and were featured in Saucy Santana’s walk video, Congratulations! How did the link up with Santana come about?

Your personal style defies both feminine and masculine boundaries which show how unapologetic and confident you are as a model, influencer and over all content creator. Share with us some of your fashion influences and someone you’d love to collab with at some point in your career! My influence list seems to grow everyday as I study fashion more. I can say confidently at this moment my biggest influence in fashion would have to be Kanye west. I feel like he just gets it. I feel like I take it a step further at times and push the boundaries of what feminine and masculine looks are. A person I would love to collab with in the future would be Kanye or the team of Balenciaga. I love their angel or view of fashion right now.

You’ve worked with a multitude of fashion brands and houses such as Dolls Kill, Fashion Nova, Naked Wolf and the list goes on – any future brand endorsements or collabs on your radar?

I would really really love to work with yeezy in the near future. I enjoy their style of clothing, maybe even Moschino or Balenciaga long term. Those are all brands I have in my mood boards.

As a content creator and influencer, you create content that is consumed by the masses daily. This sometimes can seem like a huge responsibility when gauging what to share and what not to. What is that you would want your legacy to be?

In 10 years from now I want to be looked at as a LGBT mogul. I feel like a lot of the people only scratch the surface of what that truly means to me in my opinion. I want ya to be able to walk into rooms that we haven’t before and proudly. I want to be looked at as an icon in my field in the future.

Our community and following is full of aspiring talent looking for their next big break in the media industry, share some advice on how to remain true to yourself and brand while trying to land your next opportunity.

I honestly take as long as I need to when I’m working. I let nothing rush my art. I also feel like you should base your art around dates when it’s ready and it’s time. Until then focus really hard on perfecting your craft and making it better and better with each new venture. This is how I always look at it.
