Q & A
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO TAKE OUT OF TOWN VISITORS?
My favorite place to take out of town visitors is The Griffith Observatory. Built in 1933 it is a beautiful example of Deco Architecture providing a lovely view of old hollywood LA anytime of day and year.
DESCRIBE YOUR DREAM OFFICE/ WORK SPACE.
My dream workspace is walking distance from my home, filled with natural light and lots of plants. My desk would look out the window onto a body of water with a wide, soft, straight backed chair so I can cross my legs Indian style. The space would be above a small shop serving delicious British style tea & sundries—in the chance that I need a pick me up, a place to meet clients, or a quick mental break.
WHAT DOES BEING LIBERATED MEAN TO YOU?
Personal liberation is being in community with people who are on a common mission of making the world a better place — free of competition, using our individual talents and resources to accomplish a common goal.
