What is your biggest fear?
I would have to say that what I fear the most is failure.
What do you do during your downtime?

Favorite place to eat in NY?
Lucien has been my all time favorite restaurant since forever. I grew up with Zac (Lucien’s son) so I've been going there for over a decade. It's my second home. The “Foie Gras Happy Ending” at Happy Ending Lounge is also a dish that I love... I highly recommend it. I'm there so often, it's my third home.

What do you listen to these days?
My playlist has been very y2k for some time now — No Doubt, Kylie and Madonna. There's also Blood Orange and most especially Drake on heavy rotation.
What is your biggest inspiration?
To be completely honest, my friends inspire immensely. I spend a lot of time with them — any free minute I have actually — and at times they have been the sole reason I got up in the morning. Women in general inspire me.
Creatively, I'm inspired a lot by the forms and patterns that are created by nature... I love salt-water fish, snakes, lizards, mushrooms, flowers, butterflies etc. I could literally look at them for hours.
5 things you can't live without?

How do you feel about nudity and how it empowers women?
What is most empowering is when a woman embraces her nudity for her own self and for herself only. When she is open and comfortable with posing nude, it should be because she acknowledges her body as a work of art — Not to seek validation from external sources.
