What do you consider your top 3 core values and how do they affect how you lead your business? 

Integrity and having a long term view, valuing relationships and friendships with people above all.
Openminded-ness and thinking outside the box, encouraging creativity and innovation.
And last but not least: Gratitude! I feel so fortunate to work with such inspiring artists, entrepreneurs, and art collectors.

Can you share a time you either thought you failed, or actually did fail? How did you react and move past it, and what impact did it have on business decisions?

Being an entrepreneur means failing and succeeding daily. Failures, rejections, setbacks, and challenges are all opportunities to build the resilience to keep driving forward - it can be frustrating at first, but the best remedy is to realize you are empowered to get back up and at it again.

What types of projects do you have coming up that we can look forward to seeing in the future?

I am incredibly excited for the children's book on art that I wrote to be published in the next year. I care deeply about making art more accessible to all, both through technology and traditional modes, and I'm hoping that kids will be inspired by art and spark their creativity. Stay tuned!
