Where are you from?
Toronto from day 1

What do you do?
Through uni I worked for a Real Estate Brokerage, so now I’ve started the process of getting my license. But I’m still looking for something more in the field I studied and I model sometimes but would like to explore acting. For fulfillment, travel - I’m bit of a culture nerd. Or just a nerd in general - love a good book, movie night or nature walk with my dog.

What is your dream creative project?
I’d love to curate a sportswear collection in collaboration with a Canadian brand like Lululemon.

What are your go-to tunes for… 

Rising? -  My playlist is a lot of old hip hop and R&B - from Tupac to Al Green

Exercising? - Favela, Hip hop anything upbeat and aggressive really 

Partying? -  I usually pass the aux, unless everyone’s down for a throwback

Where are your favorite places to… 

Eat? -  
Sushi - Japango
Pasta - Piano Piano
Tacos - Kensington
Seafood - Ufficio

Dance? - Wherever the music's on point and my friends are

Drink? -  Snackbar or Locals Only

Shop? - Online or Queen West

Why is running important to you? It’s a solid stress release

What change/difference is the INRUN Crew making for the LGBTQ+ community?
I think it creates a positive space for everyone to come together and share. And it further produces a platform for the community to continue to generate active change

Is there something you really want to do in your city that you haven't yet?
I’ve never been to The Botanical Gardens, that and there’s always some restaurants on my to try list: Annabelle, One2 Snacks, Flor De Sal
