1. Where does your inspiration come from?
I like to find inspiration really any where from restaurants to home depot or small business shops I'm popping into. I'm always taking photos of my surroundings: floors, ceilings, window displays, etc. and thinking how to make things better or twist the materials into new content. But my favorite places to find inspiration are 1. traveling to other places + seeing how other people + cultures are doing cool things or 2. good ole instagram- following rad people who are doing unique stuff.
2. What is your big why? What keeps you going professionally?
I had to have a good 'come to Jesus' moment a few months ago to remind myself why I do what I do; because the event industry is really really hard. I realized that my end goal isn't money or to be the best name out there, but it's to really love on the people I'm working with and to really enjoy what I'm doing. If I get to love and bless people through my career, that's a win for me. I want to be a light in a hectic industry-full of grace, patience + love.
3. Favorite San Diego restaurants?
Buona Forchetta for date nights, Bracero for mezcal cocktails, Bahn Thai is my take out / easy dinner option or any where that has good poke bowls.
4. Favorite guilty pleasure?
The bachelor; am I that typical girl? I don't care how trashy it is; I'll defend my watching addiction to the end.
5. One random fact:
I am terrified of fire. Lighting matches, bonfires, etc.
