Where do you look for inspiration? Music, musicals, plays, friends and family!
What’s your favorite book / movie / line from a play / pop culture guilty pleasure / cocktail? I don’t like to choose one favorite per category because I feel like it is so finite but to name a few favorite books… The Kite Runner, The Hunger Games, The Princess Trilogies, The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer
What play or production changed your life? Dreamgirls, when I was in the 5th grade. I seem to remember there being some simple staging and change of lights that suggested a change from the characters being backstage to being onstage within one of the songs – I just thought it was the most magical thing.
Is there anything you still dream of doing? Producing on Broadway
What is your best escape? A relaxing vacation
What’s the one thing nobody knows about you? I was very instrumental in the formation of www.nycshop.com
