Practice Okinawan martial arts and yoga, and I love sailing and hiking.
Passion for fashion; especially Bottega Veneta, Missoni, John Varvatos, Céline, and Yigal Azrouël.
Once upon a time I wanted to be a poet and writer, but in junior year of high school I had a published piece for a book get over-edited and I’ve been hesitant about sharing work ever after.
