"How would you define your firm’s aesthetic? I noticed the art here really varies. You’ve got works by Frank Stella, Nabil Nahas, and Paulo Laport.
They’re different moods, each in different places in the office. My favorite one is the Nahas painting in the conference room. It takes up the entire wall. I don’t want mood boards all over the place. I refuse to do that. People protested, “We need pinup space!” I said, “We don’t do pinups anymore.” I wanted a huge painting instead. "
