What is unique that's not in your bio?
I am 'gelato' dependent and can eat tons of it. I am obsessed with new flavors, new 'gelato shops' and their ever evolving marketing techniques.
How do you define cool?
Cool is new, innovative, an unusual point of view expressed any, many and all ways that leaves you amazed and enthused.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Wherever you are: observe, absorb and be curious.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
A constant source of innovation and inspiration to be sponged up. I enjoy discovering the "surrounding" intricate blogosphere, watch how ideas progress and get amplified. Trendhunter is the Great Amplifier.
What is your favorite trend?
I have soooo many fave trends. Check out my 'Like's
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
The right trend will inspire you.
How do you reset to be creative?
Relax, travel, meet interesting people.
