What’s your biggest form of self-expression?
My biggest form of expression is making and writing music, when I can put my feelings and thoughts down on paper it allows me share with others insight into what I’m feeling in that moment. It also provides a self reflection for me to the situation and feelings I had when I wrote that song.
What do your eyes gravitate towards when you first see a person?
The lips I think you can tell a lot about how someone is going to speak by seeing their lips if they’re going to be painfully annoying or reserved.
Beer or wine?
Easy, beer! I hate a wine drunk it feels like my heeding is stuck inside a fish tank and I’m falling down a flight of stairs (Laughs, E.D).

What’s the first thing you eat after a runway show?
A bar of chocolate and have a cigarette.
Netflix or in-person movies?
I love going to the movie theater, I feel as if it adds an extra layer of warmth to the experience. Same as listening to vinyls, or shooting on film it adds something to it that’s hard to put into words.

What’s your favourite motivational quote?
I don’t really read to much into motivational quotes but I love Rocky there’s this scene where he says ‘YO, ADRIAN I DID IT!’ And whenever I watch this it makes me feel invincible.
What’s the best-kept secret about fashion week as a model?
If I tell you it won’t be a secret, but in all honesty I’m very new to the industry and have nothing to report on.
What’s you favourite song?
Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl) by Looking Glass. My mum used to put in on when I was really young, and I’d sit and bask in the beauty of it lyrically and instrumentally. It paints a gorgeous story about love and distance, I put it on whenever it’s a romantic setting.
