Creating, love, design, spirituality
If I weren’t me, I would be:
Best trait about yourself; physically and mentally:
I am an extremely strong person in more senses than one, which is something that I've grown into despite certain unfortunate situations that I am now very fortunate for. And I cannot imagine what I would look like if I didn't have the colored eyes that I do.
First thing in the morning:
Sage and cigarettes.
I wish I could have one! My eating schedule is always erratic. I try to eat a bunch of berries and drink a ton of water each day regardless of where I am though.
Something you'd never do or give for money:
Absolutely anything… passion over wealth always.
Have you experienced unrequited love, and what did you do about it:
I've been lucky enough not to, although I have had my fair share of love triangles. Those aren't too fun. Plus I'm an extremely selfless lover, which makes them even harder.
Being anywhere and doing anything with someone I love.
Rad Hourani, Skingraft, Ann Demeulemeester, Agent Provocateur.
I could never choose… Joy Division, CocoRosie, Chromatics, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bauhaus, Marilyn Manson, iamamiwhoami, Chemical Brothers, The Cure, The Sounds, Interpol, Arctic Monkeys, Poliça to name very few.
Favorite restaurant in NYC:
Pastis; it’s been such a staple of mine since I was younger.
