Becoming an icon doesn’t happen overnight. It takes perseverance and drive. And knowing how you work best.
Creative connections and relationships inspire and fuel my own work, and they’re one of the key reasons I thrive in New York City. I interviewed a variety of creative friends about how they work – from what time of day they’re most productive to what are their biggest distractions and inspirations.
