What is your favorite kind of music? Favorite song?

I love all kinds of music. I used to listen to a lot of country music growing up and eventually that transition to Indie music. It’s hard to pick a favourite song but there are a few songs that I know I will always love throughout my life as they hold a special place linked to special memories:

Free falling – Jon Mayer
When the party’s over – billie
Everything – Michael bubble
Resolution – Matt corby
Shadow – birdy
Slow dancing in a burning room – John Mayer

What part of your job do you enjoy the most and why? 

I love the creation part, being in the studio bringing a new song to life. I also love when the visuals come to life during the filming of the music video. That process has a thrill to it that doesn’t match anything else.

What does fashion mean to you?

I’ve always been a fashion enthusiast since I can remember. It’s a big part of my life as I find it one of the means of expression in my everyday life.

If you could give people 3 tips about style, what would they be?

Be comfortable.
Wear what you want.
Be confident.

What are your overall thoughts on Spanish fashion?

I think Spanish fashion is one of the most creative, innovative, and influential in the world. With ongoing reclaiming traditions it always remains influenced today by Spanish history. I love that no matter where you go you see the locals presented with so much self expression.
