I asked them a few questions to get to know them a little better. Here's a peak at our conversation.
It's pretty awesome that you are a husband and wife team. What's it like to work with your spouse? Any unusual quirks that you have to deal with? :)
Creatively, working together is the best thing we can do. Our ideas tend to compliment one another's in all the best ways. It gets a little more difficult when we have to critique each others work, however. Brutal honesty is great in the business world; not so much between husband and wife. Diplomacy is the key - and making sure that you are in "work mode" not "spouse mode". As for quirks - Adam has an obsessive streak about the jewelry. He will stop mid sentence because he's had an idea for a pair of earrings, and its impossible to get his attention again until they are finished. My quirks? I can be hypercritical - little piece of wire out of place? Shadow in a picture? Not on my watch!
What does the name of your shop, WoodstockNYC mean?
I was born and raised in Saugerties, NY - home of the Woodstock '94 Festival. It changed my life and perception of beauty. Adam is a born and raised city boy, with an exceptional eye for quality. WoodstockNYC represents a blending of our hometowns, and our lives. The perfect mix of city chic and hippie sensibility.
Stephanie--If you could travel anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, where would you go?
It may not seem glamorous, but I would go back to San Francisco. I left my heart there on our honeymoon - we even got tattoos in Haight Ashbury. The people, the architecture, the shopping and the food are all I could ask of any place. As long as I could have Adam holding my hand on the trolley of course.
Adam-- if you could eat anything right now, what would you eat?
Seeing as my day job is Executive Chef, that's a loaded question! The answer is easy though - a home cooked meal by Stephanie. No one ever cooks for a chef!
