Brick Underground

Brick Underground is a fantastic New York Real Estate Magazine with great stories about life in New York and tips for people looking for an apartment to rent or own.  They recently spoke to me about my New York City Home and Stanford White obsession.

VPL Activewear SS15 NY Fashion Week 9/14

Collaborating with the artistic fashion genius Victoria Bartlett, and directors Britt Kubat and Charles Villot to create the film Fundipendulous was an incredible experience.  I really enjoyed creating all the “aerial looks”, casting, training and choreographing the dancers as a co-creative director of this project.  Thank you Purple Fashion Magazine for publishing the video:

Genius Gala 2012 and 2013

This is my favorite event of the year, as well as the most humbling. Surrounded by brilliant minds and nobel-prize winners, I try my hardest to inspire the people who inspire me.

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

This is a very moving event. Besides the hope and courage the event promotes, I was so happy to perform in the Kennedy Center together with the incredibly talented Denyce Graves. As an artist, it’s impossible not to feel welcome in the Kennedy Center after walking in under the inscription,

I look forward to an America which will reward achievement in the arts as we reward achievement in business or statecraft. I look forward to an America which will steadily raise the standards of artistic accomplishment and which will steadily enlarge cultural opportunities for all of our citizens. And I look forward to an America which commands respect throughout the world not only for its strength, but for its civilization as well.

 - John Fitzgerald Kennedy

 Susan G. Komen treated me very well as a guest in Washington, DC. It was a great night on a snowy weekend.
