Best piece of advice you were ever given?

To do for one what you wish you could do for everyone. The needs around us can be overwhelming. This advice gives me a tangible and realistic way to show compassion and help others.

Guilty Pleasure?

About a year ago I discovered a Turkish TV show, Erkenci Kus, and despite not knowing any Turkish, I watch almost every episode. Each one is 2+ hours long. I can now say a few words in Turkish, so I use that to justify the amount of time I spend watching it and being a silent part of the fandom. #Canem

Biggest pet peeve?

Not being fed in time. My friends, co-workers, and family can confirm – let Tiffany become hangry at your own risk. But I also really dislike people who don’t rinse their dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.

Are you a plant killer or caretaker?

I can’t easily have plants at home with the cats, but I’ve done pretty well maintaining a small jungle in the design room.
