I’m a mom, a wife, a friend and a business owner.
What characteristics really define you?
I think my friends would say I’m generous, generally positive and hardworking.
What would you like to be better at?
Using the electronics in my house. It’s so complicated, I can’t even turn on the TV!
Who are your favorite people?
My very favorite people live in my house! My husband is strong and powerful. My oldest daughter is a little love bug. My second daughter is an actress, writer and director. My oldest son is reserved and as sweet as can be! And my little guy is outgoing, social and an excellent athlete!
What makes you feel your best?
When I don’t overschedule myself and have time to really enjoy this magnificent life and the amazing people in it.
How do you take care of yourself?
I love yoga! I am a believer of health within reason. I like to eat healthfully, but I also love Cheetos and sweets.
What are your favorite clothes?
Why my denim, of course!

I’m in love with Elizabeth Peyton’s portrait of David Bowie. I can’t get it out of my mind!

The Hotel De Cap in Cap D’Antibes! I went there this summer on vacation with my family and it was incredible.
