What do you want to be doing in five years?
This is tough, since five years ago I had my own business, which was one of my life goals. In another five years I don’t necessarily know where I’ll be, but I definitely want to be surrounded by an amazing team doing amazing work. It could be big or small. I just want to believe in what I’m doing and know that the people I’m working with also believe in it too.
Who is your dream collaborator?
Even though I would never have any business collaborating with him … James Turrell. His work is truly amazing. I love environmental design, and while that’s not what he does, he does create immersive light and art experiences that are just incredible. If I could even design a poster for an exhibit of his or anything related, I would be honored.
How do you overcome a creative rut?
I just turn the page and start over, metaphorically speaking. I have to get out of what I am trying to do, to hopefully free myself and find a new approach.
What message do you have for womxn in the creative community?
There’s no one direct path. Everyone’s story is unique. Pave your own way.
What’s the best career advice you’ve received?
Always get louder.
