PERSONAL INTERESTS

I very much enjoy being active. I was lucky to have stumbled into pole dancing as that opened up many other doors for me like aerial, burlesque and yoga. I enjoy being challenged, so pole and yoga have been huge for me. I've also always enjoyed art and writing. I had big dreams of working in advertising as a teen, it sounded like so much fun. A way to be creative and capture people's attention. So in a way, I do that with my Instagram posts nowadays. I like to go all out with colour, sparkles and tie that in with a message. I like clean and minimal design, but I find freedom in just being artistic without needing a reason.
