What is the best thing that I love about my work?
What is my idea of perfect happiness?
Having the opportunity to pursue happiness itself which of course means being able to do what I want exactly when I want to.
What is my greatest fear?
To be controlled by it..
What is the trait that I most deplore in myself?
My almost inevitable need to have to reason and argue EVERY . SINGLE. POINT
Which living persons in my profession do I most admire?
There are way too many but also I feel like every person I have crossed paths with is utterly admirable in a very special way.
What is my greatest extravagance?
Being instinctively me, and having the ability to surround myself with humans who allow that anytime..
On what occasion would I lie?
In a situation where there is a lack of trust.
What is the thing that I dislike the most in my work?
There is absolutely nothing about it that I dislike, and that is a good reminder of why I am still doing and have been doing this (and only this) for so many years. Only when I get to meet or work with people who seem to be more invested in making headlines rather than art to channel their own voice is when I am actually thrown off a little…
When and where was I the happiest, in my work?
I am the happiest whilst I am in the creative process with vision and clarity, especially when I am working with humans who can read into me pretty easily.
If I could, what would I change about myself?
Absolutely nothing, but I do keep in mind that I always have the opportunity to change or make the best out of situations, by taking the better decision perhaps , there is always room for improvement, everywhere, in everything and everyone .. it is an on-going process…
What is my greatest achievement in work?
My work is nothing about achievement, the ability to make art and explore my life through it is truly a gift and achievement in itself… if one can make that happen, if one can make art that does not need much research to authenticate the truth than that would be a summation of a lot of achievements. Also I think any step be it forwards or backwards , is always a learning process no matter what…. a week ago I came up with concept, edited the music and choreographed the 5 min piece in two hours , I had it performed for an audience at West Park that same weekend and it worked out phenomenally (thanks to my dancers). It is a simple example but I still see achievement in that … every little helps..
Where would I most like to live?
San Francisco or on a private Island with lots and lots of sea and sun…
What is my most treasured possession?
I think that possessions and treasures can be two totally opposite things. Possessions are all equal to me and so I find no special treasure in any of that… in other words to me it is useless treasuring any… that is why I really don’t have any treasured possessions. I do have many fond memories and stories that I utterly treasure though , we definitely need a separate blog post per story .. !
What is my most marked characteristic?
I really don’t know… it seems like most people I know , do know me in a different way and they point out different qualities and characteristics…. I am a different million people I guess…
What is my most inspirational location, in my city?
It could be anwhere , just have to keep my eyes and mind open.

My apartment of course…. Some of my favourite restaurants are Zuma, Cipriani, Lobster House, Fiorello’s , Polo Bar or Peter Juger’s steakhouse in Williamsburg , there are so many great places that I absolutely love… oh also Il Violino and Bar Centrale (phenomenal martinis).. please reach out if any of you readers are around 🙂
What books influenced my life and how?
Metemorphosis by Kafka… it influenced me because I got to understand that change or not being able to change is all psychological.

Caleb Carr and Edgar Allan Poe
You Only Die Once. What music would I listen on my last day?
And you only live once too! The sound of the calm waves on the shore…. I would listen to that every single day of my life…
