This just in: The one lesson I take from Pope Francis

Pope Francis in DC

Pope Francis in DC

Aside from celebrating the general spirit of Christmas, I’m not Christian. However, what I take from Pope Francis is one simple and powerful lesson: if all people everywhere took up the mantle of humility and service we would have a happier, healthier, safer, and more productive world. If we could spend some time every day putting aside self preoccupation for the sake of others, we’d all be better off.

In every experience, I have used my sense of and respect for elegant design to develop meaningful products, services, program, and events to help people live happier, healthier lives.

I am proud to New York City my home, and I've been called the happiest New Yorker by friends and strangers alike. They're right.
