How did you start modeling for me?
I met Amber while working at The Shop at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. My first shoot with her was on July5th in 90° weather! We all know Xmittens keep you super warm, so wearing them in the middle of summer makes you wish it was December!
*When you are not modeling for Amber Coppings Designs, what do you like to do?
I just moved home from Chicago. Now that I am home, I enjoy visiting arts and cultural places, trying new food and beer, and working out. My fiancé and I like going through the City Paper to find things we’ve never done before. Adventures are fun!
*What is your creative passion (or just plain ‘ol passion)?
My biggest creative passion involves fashion and cosmetics. Most people hate all of the ads in magazines. I absolutely LOVE them. I enjoy finding new ways of doing makeup as well as getting other wardrobe ideas.
*How did you first come across Xmittens/Amber Coppings Designs?
Amber’s pieces were some of the most popular items for sale in The Shop at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts!
*What kinds of items do you wear that I have made?
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Xmittens. I made sure to get different pairs in different colors so I would always match my outfit!
How awesome are you? Pshhhh – I am the most awesome person EVER!
What inspires you? My Mom has always been the biggest inspiration in my life. She never hated anything except meanness. She would be proud to know that I hold the same values.
Superhero power? I am obsessed with birds, so flying is the only appropriate answer.
