Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: I’m a musical artist. I’m also an avid cook. My home is a space for me to be creative — whether it be in songwriting, cooking, or recording or producing my music. My apartment also contains a small home studio where I record all my songs to be released.

I can be quite an introvert when you first meet me, but will turn more bubbly after you get to know me well. It’s reflected in my apartment because the backdrop is very minimal, but there are lot of decorations that give off pops of color.

I’m a person who’s passionate about the past so I have a bunch of vintage appliances as well. Because I’m a musician, you can find music gear in every room.

What is your favorite room and why? My bedroom studio — I record and produce all my tracks here and is the birthplace of all my songs!
