Do existing relationships create any workplace obstacles?
The biggest problem isn’t at work—it’s at home. If we have dinner together, we try to make a point of leaving business talk at the studio. I suppose the reverse is also true. If I’m at my desk and my father comes in asking how the kids are, I have to say, “Ok, Dad. It’s nice you’re asking, but I’m working.” When we’re at work, we’re at work. When we’re at home, we’re at home.
Did your parents instill the importance of the arts in you and your brother while you were growing up?
Not really. We were a very normal family, to be honest. It’s cliché, but love was the biggest influence in my childhood. The family has always been really close. Even now, my parents are divorced but still collaborate on the business. The relationship we all share is something special.
