Q&A

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given in your career?

“To go outside my comfort zone. To constantly try to disrupt the traditional way of doing things.”

What or who inspires you?

“I have been inspired by Saul Zaentz who always made his choices by the power of the the material and at his own expense, and Brian Grazer who expands his knowledge by meeting new and interesting people outside of our core business.”
