Favorite Song: "Numb/Encore" by JayZ & Linkin Park

“This song gets my adrenaline going on so many levels. Jay tells the life story of the struggling, starving artist (ME!) that is misunderstood in a stereotypical, narrow-minded world. Then, you have Linkin Park delivering the alien-like beats and powerful message conveying the fact that sometimes you are ready—it’s the world that's not ready for you.”

Favorite Song: "Witch Hunt" by Fear Cult

“Apart from being written by my most favorite and loved person in the world, I believe that this song is my favorite, not only for its unique, catchy, and original sound, but because lyrically I feel that this song encompasses much of the struggles and realities of my own experiences.”

Favorite Song: "Riot Rhythm" by Sleigh Bells

“Their album Treats, is my ultimate jam when I am working hard in the studio and need a dance break or energy boost. I love the juxtaposition of Alexis Krauss' girly and sweet vocals with the hard guitar and baseline. I try to do the same in my designs, bringing an edge to my innately feminine work to keep it from ever feeling prissy."

Favorite Song: "Destroy Everything You Touch" by Ladytron

“I love to listen to them while I work. Sometimes we might make the wrong choices in life and subconsciously do it on purpose—causing us to fail over and over. Just a reminder to be strong and intense and remove negativity from your life.”

Favorite Song: "Take Back the Night" by Justin Timberlake

“I like it because it's fun and gets me hype to create while making me want to dance. It takes me back to old Michael Jackson, which makes me reminisce about the days when I was a babe, had big dreams, no worries, and mommy knew everything! It just makes me happy.”

Favorite Song: "Mass Appeal" by, Gangstarr

"This song keeps me on my philosophy on life when I’m lost. When I feel like everyone is further ahead of me in the game, I realize, as long as I do what I like and do it my way, I will never regret what I do. I never water my designs down to put something out there. What I put out there requires skills and no one can take that from me.”
