You’re the epitome of the multi-hyphenate, as a DJ, model, pianist, and overall influencer: What was the career you envisioned yourself having?
My dream job is being an artist and the medium always changes, so whether I am putting together a set, whether I'm coming on board as a musical director for a show, whether I'm consulting on runway, I've always connected with music and found music to be an outlet that allows you to transcend cultural barriers, language barriers, and allowed you to connect to people. I think that the connectivity of music is what inspires me and keeps me going in my field and makes it my dream job.
You have your toes dipped in so many different spectrums of the creative world; how do you manage it all?
I do a lot of creative things. I think keeping my life in balance really stems from the fact that everything comes in the same place and all the different mediums are just different outlets of expressing myself as an artist.
What is your shoe attitude?
My shoe attitude is fun. These stiletto heels are so me because they're colorful.
You were born in Perth and moved to NYC to pursue your dreams, without a plan. How did you have the courage to do this?
Moving to New York by myself to pursue my dream - which at the time I really didn't know what it was - was very challenging. When I moved there I didn't know anybody, I didn't have a job and didn't have any friends so I was starting from the bottom and I only had upwards to go. It was a money shot. I rolled the dice.
If you could invite your muses or icons for dinner, who would it be?
If I could have anybody over at dinner, I would invite: Michelle Obama, Betty Davis and Oprah. It would be like a bad girls club : me, Betty, Oprah, Michelle.
