In my new home! I am constantly plotting remodel scenarios. All the imperfections push me to think creatively in ways to make them better.
What does sustainability mean to you or your business? What systems have you implemented to prioritize sustainability?
For me and for my business, sustainability means being conservative with how I utilize the resources that are available to me.
I avoid single-use anything - reusing materials and equipment. I support small local businesses.
Since my job requires me to actively participate in consumer culture, in my personal life I disengage from it, minimizing the purchase of goods, and leading a lifestyle focused on enjoying nature and sunshine.
Who are the women in your community that inspire you? Do you have a mentor?
I wish I had a mentor! I am inspired by those who strive to enjoy their life to the fullest, in a sustainable and peaceful way. Especially those who are also mothers.
In my work, I drive inspiration for each job from the photographers I am collaborating with; I love Amanda Charchian, Carissa Gallo, Nadia Lee Cohen, Maria del Rio.
What has been the biggest challenge in your career? How did you approach it?
I am still trying to figure out the best approach to my biggest challenge, which has been balancing my work with being a new mom.
Society is facing an unprecedented situation with the effects of COVID-19. What have you been doing to stay grounded and mindful during these times? Do you maybe have a recipe or favorite pastime to share while we are all at home?
I am enjoying feeding my son breakfast while facetiming with my mom, who lives in Barcelona. I have been home over a month now, finding balance in at least one daily walk on the yard, weather permitting. I also like to start the day with a glass of water and practice qi gong at sunset.
