We had the good fortune of connecting with Maya Gwynn and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Maya, what makes you happy? Why?
Over the past couple of years, there have been so many situations that have forced me to slow down and appreciate things I used to take for granted. I would say those are the things that make me the happiest now. The small stuff. Sharing funny videos with friends, walking around my neighborhood, and random acts of kindness from strangers. I feel so blessed for my friends & family who continue to support me. They make me so happy and make my life beautiful everyday.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I just started directing my own work! It’s been an incredible experience to tap into a different part of my creativity. I told myself by the time I turned 30 I just wanted to direct one thing! I’ll be 30 in two months and I’m on my 5th project! Only up from here.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Currently obsessed with the crawfish mac n’ cheese from Stevie’s Creole Cafe
