What inspires you?

The way technology can be used to change culture; to help people connect and support each other in each others’ growth and development journeys. I am also inspired by nature — the woods, horizon lines, and how diverse the flora is on Long Island where I live.

What relationship has been most influential in your life?

The relationship to my daughter and to my dear friend and business partner, Loupe co-founder, Rae Cohen Bernamoff. Her grace and talent are hugely influential and inspirational.
