Describe yourself in 3 words...
How have your boys inspired you to do all this great philanthropic work?
Having children has further galvanized what I’ve always believed to be true: “there’s is no such thing as other people’s children” when I look at my children, I see the preciousness and worth of all children. It’s that boundless love and appreciation for my boys that drives me to stand up for humanity.
What are your favorite family activities in NYC and the Hamptons?
We enjoy doing things as a family, especially when it’s about exposing the kids to new things. With so many to choose from, going to museums in the city is always a fun family activity.
- The Children’s Museum
- The Moma
- National Museum of Mathematics
- The Brooklyn Museum
- The Met
In the Hamptons we like to spend a lot of time outdoors some of our favorite are
- Paddle Boarding in Montauk
- Pony Rides at Rita Stables
- Soccer on the Lawn
- Looking for Worms and Bugs
- Fire Pit Marshmallow Roasting
What has been your most memorable family vacation to date?
That’s a hard one, Jason and I like to take our kids with us everywhere (even business trips when possible) so that means we have lots of great family trip memories. But recently we took a family trip to Iceland and did many unique and fun things like get in hot springs, walk behind a waterfall, watch a geyser in action, snowmobile on a glacier, see a volcano, and during the whole week we were there the sun never set, That was pretty wild!
You wear so many hats, being Mama, producing film and artist/brand collaboration, co-owning The Hole art gallery, and devoting yourself to many philanthropic efforts, how do you carve out “me time?” How do like to spend that time?
The truth is all the things I do are “me time” I have had the great luxury of choosing my path/career in life. I am grateful for the privilege of being able to do what I love everyday.
Who are your favorite artists for children’s bedrooms?
We like to expose our boys to all kinds of artists/art and teach them early how to interact with the works so they can enjoy art through all the stages of their lives. Having said that there is a great website I like to use called Artstar, Little Collector that really curates kid-friendly works by great artists.
What values do you hope to instill in your children?
I hope to support and nurture our boys to be the best version of themselves, whatever that looks like. As parents we want to teach our children how to navigate in the world with:
- Self Love
- Critical Thinking
- The Ability to Listen
- Self Awareness
What’s your mantra?
Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change.
