More recently I have moved away from wardrobe styling and into the entertainment, social media influencing, creative directing along with designing my sustainable streetwear brand @intl.SadBoy my goal is to inspire creativity and encourage creators to showcase their authenticity and vulnerability without fear.

How are you impacting your community?

Over the past four months with everything going on in our country, I’ve been able to use my platforms to share information about social injustice as well as uplifting information. I’ve also been able to participate in Marches with the BLM Movement! In my opinion there’s no point in having a large platform if you won’t use it to say or do something impactful.

What advice would you give to someone looking to follow your path in the industry?

The best advice I can give is to be honest with yourself about who you are and what you want! Doing this will Help you to stand your ground When making decisions!

What separates you from your competitors?

I try not to think too much about the competition. I always want my work to feel authentic and true to my vision. I make decisions based on what is best for my brand and my audience.
