a bit about Erica

What do you do and why do you do it?

For work, I’m a photographer, artist and branding creative. For fun, I’m a yogi and a traveler. For society, I’m a philanthropist and a human rights activist. For sanity, I like to research metaphysics and parapsychology. I do it all because it keeps me creative, connected, thinking, and very much alive…

What TV show is a must watch?

Cosmos, Planet Earth, Shameless, Transparent, Orange is the New Black, Golden Girls (FOREVER), the Daily Show, Steven Colbert, Jimmy Fallon…

What’s the best karaoke song of all times?

Anything by Donna Summer or 2pac if I’m in the mood to express how white I am.

Which movie have you watched more than 3 times?

Baraka by Ron Fricke.

Have you ever cried while reading a book? Which one?

Probably, but I don’t remember. I haven’t read a dramatic novel in a long time… These days, I stick to books about mediumship, ETs and cosmic intelligence.

Are you a planned or a spontaneous shopper? What’s your go-to store in New-York City?

I only shop when I have to. I kind of hate shopping unless I’m rich and the fashion trends fit my style. Shop Untitled on 8th street is my favorite store of all time, but Zara is more of an everyday kinda spot for me. Love Adorned has the best jewelry if you’re a hipster princess.

What’s the one place in New-York City that you’re sure only you truly appreciate?

The stoop on the corner of Commerce street next to the Cherry Lane Theater.

What’s your dream job?

Massage critic.

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

Burning Man, hands down. It’s the most magical place on Earth. All my greatest memories are from somewhere deep Playa.

Where do you go in New-York City if you have two hours to kill?

It’s New York City, how does anyone ever have two hours to kill???? Comedy shows. I don’t get to enjoy them as much as I would like.

Who’s your hero and where would you take them out for a bite or a drink in New-York City?

My main squeeze, Dolly Parton, and we would most definitely go to Lips for the “Ultimate in Drag Dining”
