Your current Netflix addition:

I’m still watching House of Cards

Favorite Instagram account to follow:

@frost_french would be my top pick. It has a gorgeous feed and really stands out. 

What do you love most about your work?

Aside from working with my amazing team, it would have to be receiving feedback from all our customers.

Go-to workout song on your most recent playlist.

Cheerleader by OMI is the first song on my workout playlist. 

At 9am each day you are...

In my car, battling LA traffic and either speaking with my mom or listening to a podcast. 

The trend you hope never goes out of style:

Definitely denim jackets. I would probably still have to wear mine. 

Nail color currently on your hands and feet:

Red makes me happy. Right now it’s Bordeaux by Essie and in the summer it’s usually a brighter red like Russian Roulette, which is also by Essie. 

Favorite pizza topping:

While it’s almost impossible to find as a topping option at most pizza places, sweet corn is my favorite. 

The skill or sport you’re dying to learn:

Ceramics. I just signed up for lessons and I have a lot of things I want to make! 

Midnight snack of choice:
