I was born…

inBudapest, Hungary.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the nature and the sunshine. Wow! One of the most beautiful places in the world.

I’m listening to…

I don’t listen to podcasts. In terms of music, the latest song I have downloaded on iTunes is Gold by Andreya Triana.

My family…

my husband.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

since I would want to have a great time, I would choose a group of fantastic women: Sophia Vergara, Salma Hayek, Gabrielle Union, Queen Latifa, Sandra Bullock.

One thing I cannot live without…

other than my husband, it would be design.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a professional basketball player.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

economic equality. Environmental cleanliness. Four day work weeks.

The perfect day would be…

breakfast outside. Morning massage. Going for a hike. Picnic. Playing basketball. Homemade dinner. Movie.

My first job was…

basketball. It was a full-time commitment to play division 1 basketball and it paid for college.

My favorite escape…

nature with no manmade structures or crowds. A new place I haven’t been.

My life…

changes by the minute. I am always fascinated by people who book vacations, restaurants, flights, hotels, etc. months ahead of time. Most of the time, we book things the day before because we don’t know what the next day will look like.

I’m currently working on…

launching our flagship store.

Always…

trust and follow your instinct and listen to different points of view. Negotiate. Confront injustice. Be kind and introspective.

Never…

have low standards towards yourself or others. Never fail to take responsibility for your actions. Never let people manipulate you. Never take yourself too seriously.

Favorite Quote…

The most recent quote I read and liked is “You can never be overdressed or overeducated” by Oscar Wilde.

Biggest Dream…

a poverty- and illness-free world.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

hypocrisy. Overcommunication. Standing in line. Paying for things that should always be free (toilet, water, and tampons etc).
