How do you think others would describe you in 3 words?

What are your go-to blogs for fashion & tech news info?
HL: WWD, Refinery29, Mashable, Business of Fashion, TechCrunch, The Cut, WhoWhatWear, for a good laugh I read ManRepller
Pick one: music, food, or movies.
HL: Oh I love them all! But I’ll go with music, I love live music! I’m seeing The Black Keys concert tonight. One of my favorite places in the world is Red Rocks Amphitheater outside of Denver, it’s the best place for an outdoor concert with beautiful views of the mountains and city.
If you could listen to one artist forever, who would it be?
HL: I don’t think I could ever choose one artist; I’m too eclectic with the music I listen to. I have playlists that contain Florence and the Machine, Sia, Coldplay, Fleetwood Mac, Donna Summer, DMB, Ace of Base, Pretty Lights, Ingrid Michaelson, to name a few all in one. I’m also a huge fan of movie scores; it’s what I listen to for serenity or when I need to focus while studying or working.
What do you love most about working with Third Wave Fashion?
HL: The feeling of community I get from the rest of the TWF team, as well as each day I learn something new about fashion + tech.
Who’s your style or business crush?
HL: For Style AND Business, the Olsen twins. I grew up in the 90’s watching them—since Full House to now. They’re two of the top influential people in fashion.
What’s your favorite startup right now, and why?
HL: For fashion, Kaleidoscope is a interesting concept introducing people to a new way to discover and shop fashion.
Who inspires you— whether in business or in life?
HL: My parents, each on their own. My mom is one of the most giving and selfless people I know. She helps me grow as a person daily. My dad is an entrepreneur and I grew up inspired by his motivation for success. Seeing him grow his company over 25+ years is what made me want to work with startups.
Where do you see yourself in 7 years?
HL: I honestly have no idea. I’m on a constant life roller-coaster right now, and I like the mystery of what the future holds. But I hope to be happy and continue to travel the world.
