~ WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
I’m asked this question so often I have a number of responses to choose from, but I’ll say for now: New Jersey by way of somewhere in Seoul, South Korea.
~ FAVORITE QUOTE?
“This too shall pass”, to which I add, so enjoy every moment possible; you never know the last time you’ll see someone, go somewhere or taste something.
~ FAVORITE COLOR?
Seems a little obvious, no?
~ FAVORITE FOOD?
I would be happy eating Korean food every day, morning, noon and night. I guess it’s in my blood somewhere. And anything fried or with cheese.
~ FAVORITE CRAFT?
Whichever one I happen to be doing at any moment and the 5 other projects in my head at the same time.
~ FAVORITE PLACE TO VISIT?
Really tough to decide between Paris, Seoul and San Francisco, may have to go back to do more research. It depends on who you’re with and remembering that each experience will never be the same.
~ MY DREAM JOB IS TO BE AN EVENT PLANNER, ANY TIPS?
Working in the events industry means that every day is different. It takes more behind the scenes than most people realize to make everything sparkle and flow. Network and learn about whatever inspires you. Anything you do can help you grow and expand what you ever thought was possible. Offer assistance to any planner, caterer, florist, chef or anyone who does something you love. You’ll see what it takes to make all that glamour happen, and how to make it look really easy. Also, accept that things will go wrong: it’s all about how to solve a problem and how quickly you can make it happen. Remember resources like where you found that special piece of fabric, who makes the best emergency birthday cake in the city and all of the things that can be immediately helpful at the local deli.
~ UMMM…DO YOU EVER SLEEP?
Not often and not well, but it’s nice when it happens.
