She is also the founder of The Other Festival, a new platform designed to showcase female makers and creators.
Dee and I sat down to talk about birthing in New York City - which can be a bit different when you know you need to get from Brooklyn into Manhattan in the city that never sleeps in a car that is not your own! We also spend some time going deep into parenting, which is where the real juice of this interview is for me because Dee shares some amazing insights that are worth passing on.
