When did you start designing products?
Freshman Year I did a design for another brand. Summer 2013 going into Junior Year. I launched my 1st brand “Entertaining The Angels” on my birthday.
What’s a typical day like for you?
Going back and forth with manufacturers to get pieces made, making designs for future drops, and making beats. I’m doing 1 or multiple of these things every day.

Growth inspires me I put my soul into my craft each day working tirelessly to be the best version of myself possible. Hopefully, that will inspire someone else too.
What style item is a must-have that you can never go wrong with?
I can’t really say to be honest, style isn’t 1 size fits all to me. It needs to be personal and unique in order to be authentic.
