“Take every opportunity that might have the possibility to help you reach your goal.”

Where are you from? Where do you live now?

I spent half of my life in Los Angeles and the other half in Colorado Springs, Colorado. After I graduated high school I moved to Santa Barbara, California where I am located now! I love Santa and plan to continue living here for the years to come.

What do you have for breakfast in the morning?

In the morning I usually will have oatmeal, eggs, or an açaí bowl. I have to have breakfast in the morning in order to have a good start to my day.

What words / motto / advice do you live by?

Try it. You never know where it will take you.

What one or two things do you currently do in your training that are keys to your success?

1.Take every opportunity that might have the possibility to help you reach your goal. Most of the opportunities you take won’t lead to any where, but one of them will surprise you eventually.

2. I always try to connect with as many like minded people as I can. I believe that the people who surround you influence you and these people can help you reach your goals.

3. Never give up on your dreams/goals

If someone wanted to start learning your craft, how do you recommend they get started? Resources?

Connect with as many entrepreneurs as possible. You can learn so much by what someone else has done. I recommend to just get out their with your idea and try it. You will learn so much by doing it by yourself and taking that leap of faith. You might make some mistakes along the way, but those are things you can learn from. Use your resources like social media. Social media has helped me make so many different connections and friends by just reaching out and people reaching out to me.

Who do you look up to in your profession and why?

I look up to Will Smith a lot, because he is someone who has put in a lot of hard work to becoming an actor. He isn’t directly related to entrepreneurship, but he has an extremely creative mind which I can relate to. I enjoy listening to what he says on interviews to learn how to be an extremely hard worker like himself.

Favorite music / podcasts / shows / games / books?

Music: little bit of everything, depends on mood
Book: Contagious- teaches you how things go viral and the physiological aspects behind it
Shows: New Girl

What events do you attend? (concerts, sporting events, festivals, charity work, ect.)

I like to attend concerts, music festivals, and a lot of outdoor activities. I skydive, surf, and any other extreme sport that I can get my hands on.
