Where are you from?
I'm originally from Ottawa but now living in downtown Toronto. 

What do you do?
Over the past year and a bit, I've been working as a full-time Dj and occasional model/actress. But, I'm a Jill of all trades. I recently created the score for a theatre piece and short film (which has always been a dream of mine) and currently producing.  I'm also a low-key a holistic health practitioner and continue to study Traditional Chinese Medicine - for those who know ;)

What is your dream creative project?
My dream creative project is to produce my own EP and direct the visuals for a few of the tracks. I've always been very interested in audio and visual storytelling and would like to dust off my videography skills... It'd be nice to eventually use my Communications degree! *Kanye shrug

Where are your go-to tunes for… 

Rising? -  It really depends on the vibe of the day and/or my energy. I'm super moody.  In the morning, it's often jazz, meditation music or indie rnb.

Exercising? - Rap and House music. I need that hard shit.

Partying? -  Old school Hip-hop and RnB, sometimes disco boogie music (but to be honest I rarely go out anymore unless I'm DJing)

Where are your favorite places to… 

Eat? -  Mother's Dumplings. They've taken a lot of my money.

Dance? - I have a wall of mirrored closet doors, so you know it gets sexy.

Shop? -  I'm a thrifty bitch, so it's either Black Market on Queen St. West or whenever Forever 21 has a sale.

Is there something you really want to do in your city that you haven't yet?
I want to get back into curating multi-sensory community art events and facilitate wellness workshops with a focus on the QBIPOC community.
