I made this abstract video diary to preserve the moment I was experiencing while standing in the Hudson Yards Plaza during a worldwide pandemic. The Hudson Yards Plaza is the home to a structure called The Vessel. This is a spot in Manhattan that quickly became a high traffic area upon it's historic opening day. It also happens to be a place I spend a lot of time because it's in my neighborhood, about one walking block from where I live.
I'm really quite pleased with this thoughtful interview hosted by Sarah Funky for GoDaddy's "School of Hustle".

It's designed to give you insight as a current or future entrerpreneur.
Full disclosure: I don't love wearing a face mask but I do it for your safety and for mine during the world's COVID-19 crisis. I don't think anyone enjoys wearing a mask! But this is our present reality. The first protective face mask that I got my hands on was the bubble shaped N-95 mask that is so tight and constricting around the mouth and cheekbones. I have really pronounced and high cheekbones so that mask wasn't happening for me. Not a problem because overnight the face mask business quickly evolved!
Look at me cooking up a storm! Ha! I thought you might enjoy this video-recipe as it's something I cook at home often. It's a very typical Latin style breakfast. So if you like latin food, you're going to love it! Here goes...
I might as well start posting updates on my workout routine, since these covid-19 times have dramatically limited all of our fitness options nation-wide. YES, I'm still working out every day and NO, it wasn't easy to restructure my workout routine. Over the past 5 months, I've been able to find outdoor classes, workout videos, trainers, a running team and so on, that compliment my schedule. But I'm going to be honest, the stuff that isn't online is few and far between because people are trying to social distance and exercise safely.
I decided to have a go at making paella—a healthier paella—using RightRice which has less sodium and 40% less net carbs than regular white rice. It’s made 90% from vegetables so you’re getting more protein and fiber from the veggies when you choose it over regular rice.
Clearly you know I’m an adidas super fan as well as an ambassador, so how could I not announce this exciting drop, right? I’m particularly excited because normally I wear more sporty and classic styles from adidas’ fitness and athleisure collections, and this set feels refreshingly different.
I don’t do this often. I’m very picky about everything I share because I take my health + yours very seriously. Do I take supplements? Yes, A LOT of them but you won’t typically find me pushing them on others because I’ve felt for so long that supplements should be a personal exploration of what’s right for your body. But this time is a little different. I’m blown away by Magnesium Breakthrough from BiOptimizers.
