What are your outside interests outside the studio?
I love everything outdoors, including a week(end) of skiing with friends, playing at the beach in Fire Island and hiking through the Indian Summer.
Where’s your favorite space to rejuvenate in the city?
During the summer, I love hanging out at the Pier i Café in Riverside Park South, watching families with their little kids and dogs during sunset with a chilled microbrew.
