Q: Where is home to you?
A: “New York City is my home. I love this place—with an infinite amount of amazing people to vibe with, this is the place to make big things happen.”
Q: What advice do you have for other people trying to start a business?
A: “Just go for it. As much as that is cliché, it really resonates because a lot of time [you’re] just being held back by second thoughts or anticipation of failure.
Q: What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?
A: “Even if you fail, you can’t beat that feeling of having tried. Failure is okay, and in fact, it’s celebrated in business. If you go in not being held back by failure, I think that you can really push boundaries with your business.“
