  1. What’s your morning routine?
    • Coffee.
  2. What’s your fondest memory of Brooklyn?
    • The basement of the Brooklyn Moon Café.
  3. If you could visit any place in the world, where would it be and why?
    • I’ve never been to Asia, so Hong Kong or Shanghai and the many places I’ve never been.
  4. How would you describe your dream collaboration?
    • I like Kar Wai’s way of making films with cinematographer Christopher Doyle. The writing process of John Cassavetes & Gina Rowland. I dream of that kind of inventive freedom and collaboration.

    • Naïma Ramos, Martina Topley-Bird, Katori Hall, Kaneza Shaal, Steve McQueen, Cecile Emeke to name a few.
