What gives you energy?

The passion I have for my work, and my kids give me energy.

What’s your secret life hack?

I believe that I never lose, I either win or learn.

Name a book that changed your life.

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

Tell us about your relationship with your phone. Do you use it for taking pictures when your camera is not around?

I do, I use my phone for pictures all the time, I love it. I hardly ever my camera around when I’m traveling, so all the pictures I have from my travels are from my iPhone.

How do you deal with email? Do your clients frequently contact you via email?

My clients ALWAYS contact me via email and I am pretty good at replying right away! Email is often the best way to contact me.

You unexpectedly find 15 minutes in your day, what do you do with it?

If I have 15 minutes of spare time in a day, I prefer to use it as quiet time, to reflect upon things alone.

When was the last time you felt that you failed and how did you overcome it?

I think the feeling of failing goes hand-in-hand with the feeling of success. Any time I do something I am proud of, I also feel that I could have done it a little better. I don’t mind the feeling of failure, as it always pushes me to be the best in what I do and to do it better next time.
