1. What are three words that best describe you?

  • Instinctual: My Dad always told me “to go with your gut.”
  • Luxurious: I live for the best ambiance and to live the good life. I don’t care to show off; I care to enjoy the pleasures of this planet. Its not what you do, its how you do it.
  • Trend Setter: This innate talent or instinct has followed me my whole life and has formed my life as well as the lives of others.

2. Tell us why you’re awesome in two sentences or less?

I have always worked on making the moment the best possible. Say you get a flat tire, find a nice restaurant, make it a blast until the car is ready. I live to laugh — there is truth in humor.

3. What are your three biggest indulgences?

  1. Living in Malibu away from the city with my Headquarters based out here is the foundation for my life of indulgence. I have lived in Malibu for 14 years and it has changed my life. It keeps me calm. Moving my office here was a leap of faith. Gorgeous ambiance and freedom is the most important qualities to a healthy lifestyle.
  2. Making time for me, if ever, by nice dinners and surfing with my boyfriend and best friends in the evenings and on the weekends. I have sat on the surfboard with one of my best girl friends and floated for miles. I come out of a day in the ocean feeling born anew.
  3. Travel … there is nothing more eye opening, life changing and exciting than the gift of seeing exotic places and ways other people in this world live. I believe in staying in the best places and putting everything else on hold and embracing that fantasy to the fullest.

5. What is your biggest pet peeve?

2. People who are cheap
3. Small talk bores me

6. If you could have dinner with anyone (living or not) who would it be?

Madonna: The living female icon of my generation hands down.

7. What is your #1 tip for fellow women entrepreneurs?

Don’t give up. Don’t get emotional. Stay positive. Know that everyone goes through the same challenges. The press may wrap us all up in pretty pictures but we have all been there under hard deadlines and learned some of the best things “the hard way.”
