she has worked as a banker, nanny, chef apprentice, and hotel concierge, among other things.

She thinks Alexander McQueen is a genius and artful and considers him to be her favorite designer. His exhibit at the Met pushed her to start professionally in the States. She considers having your own sense of style to be a fashion must. She says that her design strengths are that she is very versatile and open-minded, and that her weakness is that she gets flooded by ideas and can't edit without effort. Over the years, her design has been influenced by the women in her life. She says "they were always very clean, elegant and extremely feminine." Right now, she says it's her love for other art media and philosophy in general. When she's designing, she likes listening to '80s music one hour, before getting bored and moving onto rock bands like Nirvana and sometimes classical.
