5. What’s the greatest piece of advice you’ve been given?
This Too Shall Pass-My grandfather used to say this all the time and it was a great reminder to savor happy moments of life and to persevere through times of hardship. I try to carry that mentality with me into each day.
6. If you could eat one type of food or dessert everyday and not suffer any consequences whatsoever, what would it be?
My fantasy!!! I’m a complete foodie so this question is super difficult. I think I’d have to go with pizza because firstly, I’m Italian so loving pizza is in my blood, and also because there are so many different options to choose from. All those crusts and toppings and sauces, oh my!
7. How do you recharge?
Surrounding myself with things that make me happy. Like sitting outside and getting some fresh air with a cup of coffee while listening to a podcast. Talking to a friend on the phone. Putting on a favorite movie I’ve seen a million times. Taking the time spend with myself is invaluable.
8. What’s the coolest thing you’re currently working on or have done in the past six months?
I can’t put my finger on just one! I work on a lot of projects each day which keeps things really interesting and fresh. I think the variety and versatility of what I do is the coolest!
9. What is your ideal vacation?
Going somewhere exotic where I can lay in the sun, try amazing food, and see the sights. A happy mix of relaxation, adventure and fun!
10. What is your greatest accomplishment in life so far?
Honestly, the relationships in my life. Maintaining strong, quality relationships with friends and family is so important to me. I’m proud of how, despite changing circumstances and time passing, those relationships haven’t faltered. It’s exciting to extend that passion for others to my work!
