What part of your job do you enjoy the most and why?
I do enjoy the traveling part of my job. I get to travel and see places and cultures in a speed that not many people have the privilege to do so. From New York to Tokyo to Rio de Janeiro to London and Madrid, all very beautiful and inspiring places like no other. From food to music and sounds, from hiking to paragliding, to dancing samba to tango, from gelato to donuts, my week can include them all.
