"When I find something I really love, I feel as if there's a sort of subconscious connection in the idea that someone else out there gets me."
"There's a certain amount of love and care that's put into handmade goods, and that passion seems to show through them."
Do you collect anything?
I had to think very hard about this, but I guess it would be shoes. I tend to buy shoes and never wear some of them. Bad habit.
What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
Online shopping. Since I'm a workaholic, I do most of my shopping online, but if I can get out I like browsing the local shops in Echo Park and Silverlake.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was little I wanted to be a veterinarian, but I realized I was too emotional when it comes to dogs. A crying veterinarian wouldn't have panned out well.
