How do you balance acting, writing, and designing? That seems like a lofty job!
It is! I try to decide what is most important each day and meet every deadline. But I do need to start meditating.
What’s the hardest part about acting? What’s the best part?
The best part is the actual acting and everything that it entails: creating a character, learning their story, and researching the role. The worst part? There aren’t many great roles.
What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever done, either personally or professionally?
The scariest thing I’ve ever done was when I wrote my first script.
What’s the best city to shop in?
Paris. Hands down. No competition.
What’s the biggest fashion “don’t,” in your opinion?
I think a big don’t within fashion is when people follow trends!
If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of 2016, what would it be?
Baja East! All day, every day.
You’ve designed some amazing leather jackets. In your opinion, what makes the perfect leather jacket?
If the fit isn’t right, the jacket won’t be.
Are you always proud of your projects?
I am always very proud. If I felt I couldn’t be, I wouldn’t do it!
