Favorite band: "I have two actually You Me At Six and Bring Me The Horizon both harder rock British bands"
Who are your musical influences? "I grew up on a lot of The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Roxy Music, Herman's Herman's and The Beach Boys my dad is British so a lot of British bands were around me from a young age and even now he also played a lot of Tom Petty and U2. My close friend growing up was a DJ and Producer so I was into a lot of EDM and House but nothing with crazy bass drops I was never into that or the rave culture and of course my brother who's a country music singer/songwriter."
Who got you so into music? "I would't be where I am today without my big brother Tyler and some big pushes from friends to give it all I have."
How'd you get your start? "I started as a concert photographer for Tyler's band Tyler and The Tribe in Dallas and then started photographing other local bands and then bigger acts and eventually launching this magazine and touring. It was a struggle at first being young and normally the only female shooting."
What is your favorite thing about owning a magazine? "Ohh thats tough... Probably showcasing my friends hard work in a spread and giving other young photographers the chance to show their work to a larger audience of people. As well as meeting the bands that I'm fortunate enough to work with, I've gotten to make a lot of amazing friends."
Who are some Bands or Artists you would like to meet, they can be dead or alive? "I'd like to meet the Rolling Stones, Coldplay, Tom Petty, Bring Me The Horizon.... oh I can't think of them all I have a few others I just can't remember at the moment. Right now probably Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift they are both such amazing woman in the industry.."
