T: What’s the most fun job you’ve ever had?
W: I’ve had so many fun jobs. I can’t really choose one in particular. But all the jobs I loved, were jobs where the clients completely trusted my creative vision, and I had room to play outside the existing briefing.
T: What is your favorite shoe?
W: I only wear sneakers and heels. Nothing in between. My favorite sneaker is the Jordan 4. And my favorite heels at the moment are everything Amina Muaddi.
T: What are your biggest dreams?
W: I would like women of color to own and recognize their power. Too often we communicate with our insecurities which drive us apart. I think we are so much stronger than we think and can accomplish so much more if we allow each other to grow.
T: What was the first client you worked for and what did you do for them?
W: My first commercial client was Puma back in 2009. I shot a Gorillas campaign for a new shoe through Amsterdam and Rotterdam.

W: I would like to own multiple properties and have a healthy work/life balance.
T: When did you discover your creative side and how?

T: What was the best vacation you ever experienced and why?
W: I’ve been privileged to have experienced multiple wonderful vacations. I really love to explore and make memories with loved ones. But I think my weddingmoon with my best friends in Aruba has got to be the best yet.
