About The Episode
Kyla Paolucci's face lights up as she tells me that her love of Iris Apfel and the stylish elderly stems from growing up in an Italian American family, with 'sassy Italian women' making a lot of noise.
We met during my work for World Wrestling Entertainment, where she was a designer at the company. I quickly see it's Kyla's broad range of interests and exposure to a broad range of cultures, personalities and oddities in New York City and Rhode Island that has led to her interesting take on the world. She's fun to be around, a hugely talented graphic designer, illustrator and now production designer after landing a gig working with Adam Stockhausen on While We're Young, a new movie starring Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts.
Kyla has achieved a lot at such a young age, but takes it all in her stride. She takes us through some hilarious childhood stories, shares the details of how she landed a valuable job working on a major film production and points out the importance of looking and feeling good about yourself in our crazy creative industry!
