"I was at a party, and a guy came up to me and asked me if I wanted to be a model. I hesitated, but decided to try it. I met my first real boss, [creative director] Roy Garcia, on my first job. I showed him my CV, and he ripped it up in front of me and said, “Tell me what you can do and what you can’t.” I explained that I don’t know how to produce, but when I want to do something, I make it happen. He gave me the job. I started working right away as a producer—I was only 20!"

What are the biggest challenges in your job?
Making everyone happy — every vendor, every crew member, every person that you talk with on the phone. The amount of people that I talk to for one shoot is crazy. There are a lot of details involved. Sometimes you also have to be creative with the budgets, mostly in editorial! It’s challenging, but it’s exciting. If you love the project, you want to ask for extra favors."
