i am inspired daily by the people i surround myself with. i have some very special people in my life, whether they are best friends, family members or work acquaintances, they’re all here for a reason.

i LOVE to travel… the pure, clean, crisp air of the colorado mountains gives me a feeling i can’t describe. a close second would have to be the redwood national forest in california- a magical place for sure! i also love going out to eat and trying new restaurants, and cooking.  i’m just starting to teach myself, so i started a cooking club dinner night with my girlfriends. some of my favorite things are live music, dancing at concerts with friends, pilates, riding my bike and hikes with my new pup… and flipping through fashion mags, which thankfully has become part of my job!  on a typical day off i sleep in with my dog, cat and boyfriend – yes,all in one bed – make banana pancakes and take a walk to the farmer’s market, then maybe stroll around the city with a girlfriend, checking out shops and getting manicures.  then out to see a show with some friends at night or dinner with my boyfriend!


i love lots of kinds of music – everything  from biggie smalls to hank williams jr.  some of my all-time favorites: the disco biscuits (i have followed them on tour for the past 10 years… so yeah, i guess i like them) phish- they changed my life, grateful dead, pink floyd, radiohead, muse, zeppelin, the doors, jay z, beck, nirvana…

and some newer favorites: phoenix, gorillaz, MGMT, hot chip, passion pit
