What do you love most about Nashville?
My favorite thing about Nashville is the artistic drive that so many people exude. It truly is infectious!
What inspires your creativity?
I am constantly inspired by my environment and the people who are in it. I feel so lucky to have creative friends and live in a city where the arts, creation, and entertainment are a priority. In addition, traveling plays a big part in my creative process.
How often do you travel, and how do you make it happen?
Currently, I travel about twice a month. I try to keep travel plans lined up because traveling is truly what sets my heart on fire. I have always had a love for discovery, history, and learning about how others do life.
What is your favorite mural in Nashville?
My favorite mural has to be the ticket wall at the Metro Nashville Municipal Auditorium because the entire mural is a collage of enlarged tickets from historical concerts, from Barry White to Journey, held at the venue. Nashville is called Music City for a reason, and this mural really captures why.
If someone only had a weekend to spend in Nashville, where would you send them?
I would tell them to visit Amelia's Flower Truck, then walk and shop around 12 South and get an açaí bowl from Franklin Juice or doughnuts from Five Daughters Bakery. For a coffee break, I would send them to Café Mak'ai on 12th Ave and Wedgewood, Cafe Roze in East Nashville, or Barista Parlor which has multiple locations! Dinner at Pinewood Social is a fun experience as they have a vintage, upscale bowling alley. LA Jackson is my favorite rooftop bar as it has a swanky, old-fashioned vibe yet they always play good music!
