If you could have dinner with one person, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
More than anything, a great dinner companion is a sharp and funny conversationalist. Ali Wong hits the nail on the head about women’s experiences. Her insights are cutting and delivery so precise. They say the best insights come from comedians because they offer a true and pointed look at life.
What are the top two social media sites you use on a regular basis?
TikTok. To me, it’s most representative of what people are thinking and feeling and doing right now. And like many consumers today, TikTok is becoming my new search engine. [And] LinkedIn. I can’t overstate the value of my professional community and relationships as my career has progressed.
What’s currently on your bedside reading list?
My bookshelf is an all-over-the-place mix of fiction and nonfiction. I’ve recently been between “The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying” and “How to Talk So Little Kids Will Listen.” I find I’m most able to access my creativity and a state of flow when I’m deep into a novel. I just finished “Tomorrow, Tomorrow and Tomorrow”—highly recommend.
What was the last show you binge-watched?
"The Bear." I relate to the intensity and passion for a craft, the feeling of getting lost in what you do and the perpetual push and pull of balancing your passion with all the other things that make your life fulfilling.
At what age do you hope to retire?
For people who are innately energetic and ambitious, it’s truly hard to stop. I imagine I’ll always want to be creating and contributing in some capacity, but that may take different forms throughout different chapters of my career.
