What do you wonder about?

I wonder about the future a lot. My own future, and the world’s — I’m curious how our generation is going to evolve.

What’s more likely to be real, ghosts or aliens?


What show are you most likely to Netflix binge on?

Parks and Recreation.

What’s your dream car?

Lyndon B. Johnson 1965 Lagoon Blue Amphicar.

Favorite Hobbies?

Wrestling tigers, yodeling (AKA: cuddling with Yoda), and on weekends I like to repair air conditioning units in Antarctica.

Surfers or skaters?

Both make great friends hahaha.

What’s your dream job?

I love being a model. I think whenever it ends, it would be cool to be a first grade teacher.

What’s the last thing you created?

Scrambled eggs.

What do you like to hear instead of silence?

Led Zeppelin.

If you went to the airport without a ticket, where would you end up?


What would you say is the closest thing you have to a routine?

Wake up, work out, eat food, and go to work.

What was your biggest mistake?

Well, I make little mistakes daily. But nothing that major…knock on wood.

What skills do you wish you possessed?

If we’re talking super powers I wish I could breathe under water. I also wish I was better at math. (I was always envious of the kids at school that could do it with such ease.)

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.” I read that in To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, there’s a lot of great quotes in that book.

Tell us about your best friend.

My best friend is the best person…ever! She loves Harry Potter, animals, children, and helping people. She’s the most kind and genuine person you’d have the pleasure of meeting. Our sense of humor is the same, we’re both very goofy people with silly nerdy jokes…that only we laugh at. We have the same birthday too.

If we took you out to lunch, where would you want to go and what are we having?

Sugarfish! And we’re having the tastiest sushi in town.

Meet Irie. A rare and delicate discovery from Huntington Beach of all places. We recently did a shoot with her for our Cluster issue way back when [What Youth Issue 10], and we got to hang out with her.

Girl We Adore: Langley Fox Presented by Amuse Society

“If I don’t laugh at my outfit a little bit each morning, I’ll change.” Langley Fox told us this on the roof of the Ace Hotel after the World Premiere of Cluster. She was of course dressed impeccably, with just enough giggle. That night, it was a polka dot dress. Just perfection. And while Langley has…

Girl We Adore: Natascha Elisa In Search of Sadie Presented by Amuse Society

Natascha Elisa doesn’t make any plans. Things just seem to happen. She recently caught the attention of Amuse Society and it’s easy to see why. As a model, a blogger, a philanthropist, a business mogul, Natascha doesn’t show signs of slowing down anytime soon. It began in Australia at age 15 when she was scouted…

Girl We Adore: Kayla Varley Both sides of the glass Presented by Amuse Society

Kayla Varley left the small town of Bakersfield, California and headed to L.A. at age 17, armed with her self-taught photography skills and a whole lot of angsty ambition. Inspired by the works of Lauren Greenfield and Sally Mann, Kayla‘s photographic style commands attention. It has a bold, fierceness we like. Gifted a point-and-shoot camera…

This is Maddy Relph. She grew up in Australia and was the paper girl for Jourdan Bowen, who lived on the same street as her. Long story short, they have been together for 9 years now and one day in-between her modeling and his mining, they decided to bail. Photog and muse. On the run….

Girl We Adore: Rikki Barton Inspired by Kate Moss Presented by Amuse Society

This shoot was inspired by the historic shot of Kate Moss reading in the bathtub shot by Sante D’Orazio for Vogue Italia in 1995. And while you need say no more (you had us at Kate Moss), this ode to the icon photographed by Mark Powell caught our eye. The smokey-eyed-but-somehow-adorablely-sexy literati in her underwear…
