How you hooked up with Knotzland:  I discovered Knotzland through a local coffee shop in Pittsburgh, when the owner informed me the creator was in need of a seamstress. I saw an article in Local Pittsburgh about the company and fell in love. It was truly an inspiration and fate that intertwined us together.

Creative inspiration/icon/muse/role model:    A lot of people in the art community seem to have lost their way. Art is about expressing yourself and promoting positivity and inspiration. I always keep that in mind. I have been receiving a lot of inspiration and motivation from Casey Neistat lately. His work ethic is unreal

Favorite local spot:  The South Side is my place.

What 3 artists are you vibing to right now?:   LCD Soundsystem (James Murphy is the goat), Logic, Fleet Foxes, and Chance The Rapper. I picked 4... Rules were meant to be broken.

What are you reading right now?   I am currently reading the Game of Thrones series and Shoe Dog by Phil Knight.

How you hooked up with Knotzland:   Jeez, I really don't know the whole process. I had been sending out an extremely basic portfolio to people trying to find someone willing to give me a shot. I woke up one morning and had an email from Knotzland. I think some guys from Thrill Mill hooked it up, and I couldn't have been more lucky.
