What does your office space look like? 

I work from home when not on set, and I have a lovely table by the window, overlooking Brick Lane. A bit of random props and print laying around, and a bunch of fresh flowers, always.

What kind of music do you listen when you are working ? 

When shooting, I try to play something that makes me dance - Yelle, Caribou and David Bowie has been my recent favourites. When at home - Passion Pit, Kings of Convenience or some jazz.

Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work ? 

When not shooting, I wake up and work early, and then play after. Works most of the time.
