"You should enjoy the little detours to the fullest. That's where you'll find the things more important than what you want."

Why did you choose this colour? 

Growing up, I would reject pink because I stubbornly didn't want to be associated with femininity. Expressing myself through this colour is my way of now embracing it and demonstrating personal growth. This particular hue is also reminiscent of how I feel listening to "Everytime We Touch,"  hence Cascada.

What, besides advertising, are you passionate about?

I'm a bit of a skincare geek – no background in science, but I love learning the science of different skin types reacting to different ingredients.

How do you practice ideation or overcome a creative block?

Surrounding yourself in an inclusive environment sets up for really, really good brainstorming. Whenever I'm stuck at an obstacle, I'll ask for perspective from someone who isn't the slightest bit like myself.

What are you most afraid of?

A goose laying an egg on me.
