Quotes: 

If you’re an artist it’s great to have knowledge of the business and be educated about that, but you’ve got to keep the balance right between business and artistry, otherwise you get cynical.

Old friends, yoga and travels keep me grounded.

Sometimes you can’t fight change, because you’re a part of it.
