What do you love about the Lane?

I love how the agency knows who I am and is so personable with me. Not to mentioned excellent pay rates and quick turnaround times. Mustard Lane is definitely the best there is.

What has been your favorite gig with Mustard Lane?

Definitely the Mastercard Sensory Lab - Grammy Week Edition event activation. The Fred Segal store on Sunset Blvd. set up a massive display complete with an LED light wall, a DJ, a claw machine, and some crazy robots you could only find in a car factory. We dressed up in lab coats and pitched some fashionable clothes as part of a special collaboration between Super Duper Kyle and Joe Freshgoods. It was so fun seeing strangers walk in off the streets and watch their jaws drop at the spectacle of it all!

What do you do outside of the Lane?

I work freelance. To pay bills I work in catering and product promotions.

Describe the best museum/gig/play/game you’ve ever been to.

Last summer I went to Electric Forest which is an EDM festival deep in the heart of Michigan. There are truly no words to describe what a magical and special place that is. So far, it is the pinnacle of live experiences I've ever witnessed, with a complete display of artistic mastery on every level.

Chocolate or fruity candy?

Sour Candy!

What is your morning ritual?

I wake up, drink a glass of water, check my emails, and then do a meditation. I find meditations in the morning are a great way to clear your mind, wake up, and focus on what needs to be done.

If you could be an Olympic athlete, in what sport would you compete?

I'd be a runner. Those guys are so impressive!

Favorite rainy day activity?

Making music - I'm a musician too.

What is the last book you read or movie you watched?

The last book I read was "You Are A Badass" by Jen Sincero. Definitely one of the best self-help books I've ever read.

As a child, what did you wish to become when you grew up?

There were a lot of things I wanted to be, so I chose an actor because I could, in theory, be anything!
