Rule: Find a balance between your social and professional life.

"It's important to find a healthy balance between being a hermit sequestered in your home studio and being an erratic social butterfly. As someone who is guilty of either extreme, I find it important to surround myself with other positive, passionate makers to 'recharge' creatively and also, to allow myself 'alone time' to tinker with projects, my process, and reflect on myself both personally and professionally.

The best thing that I've done recently was joining Studiomates, a collaborative workspace in Brooklyn. Friends + Rad Projects = Happy Tuesday."
