“Stop caring so damn much what other people think.” – B. A.
What do you do & what inspires you to do it:
I’m a pianist by day and a freelance model by night (and also day). As a pianist, I’m of course inspired by the joy of music itself, the love of hearing it and creating it and the passion it all entails. Collaborating and sharing it with others, teaching it to little ones, all of that is extremely rewarding.
As a model, it’s a whole different kind of creativity, and for me an outlet that’s so unexpected and personal! Both require a certain amount of vulnerability, and the most rewarding part of both music and modeling is the same: creating art and captivating people!
How do you define success:
Are you happy? If so, then you are successful! Nothing else matters. Create a life that you love to live!
What would you say to motivate a younger you to be successful in life:
I would tell younger me to stop caring so damn much what other people think, and to go on with my nerdy self and be ok with it!
Are you doing now what you’ve always wanted to do or did you have other aspirations previously:
I’ve always wanted to be a musician, so yes. But I also wanted to model when I was a teenager and there simply wasn’t time to get into it, and quite frankly, I lacked the confidence to seriously try! So, in that regard I’ve added something totally new and cool and BOLD to what I do! Never too late I suppose!
What’s the best business or personal advice you’ve ever received:
This is the most boring, practical piece of advice but it really is good — pay for things in cash! If you don’t have cash for it, you can’t afford it. Let’s be honest, it’s not like musicians/models are exactly rolling in the cash…this one has saved me time and again!
What’s something people would be surprised to know about you:
When I was in elementary school I had a wicked Pokémon card collection. But honestly, it’s just because I liked the shiny ones…I never even learned how to play the game properly.
Do you believe in a higher power:
Yes, I believe in God.
What’s something you can’t live without:
Where do you see yourself in three years:
I have no idea! In a concert hall? On a magazine cover? Still doing the daily grind? I’m open to it all!
Single or taken:
Married, with one kiddo.
How many tattoos do you have:
Name a Song you like and Artist:
Prince, Sometimes it Snows in April.
Name a movie you like:
What do you like to do for fun:
