"I loved creating things as a little girl and can't imagine life without it. Making something beautiful by putting in time, effort, love and dedication gives me so much energy. I am a surfer and passionate about the ocean, making this my favorite place to get inspired by its colors, energy, and people.
I crave adventure, art, love, positivity and sustainable change."
