WHAT'S IT LIKE LIVING IN NYC?
Living in NYC is exhilarating. There's always something to do or somewhere to go. And there's inspiration everywhere you look. You can't miss it.
WHAT WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE OF FILMING HOME BODIES?
Filming Home Bodies was a really special experience for me. We filmed in the apt that I had spent the past five years of my life living in. Having just recently moved out, the apt appears completely empty. Dancing in the space was a nostalgic experience for me. I lost myself in all of the memories I had created there.
