Meet Tusy Culos, Digital Strategist at design and advertising
agency Baron & Baron. We've uncovered her desire to learn
French, her love for Picasso and a golden New York
There is so much to love about New York City, but what
is it that stands out most to you?
day-to-day I take it for granted until I travel outside of city,
but it always comes down to the diversity of culture.
You work alongside renowned art director Fabien Baron,
what are some of the most valuable lessons you have learnt during
your time at Baron & Baron?
Having a good
eye and taste does not happen overnight. This is something that
takes years to cultivate. Be open, listen, but always go with your
gut. Never lose sight of the bigger picture. Have a strong point of
view and be able to back it up.

What is your favourite piece of artwork in New York
City? Where can we find it and why is it your
She-Goat. The sculpture is made out of scraps of metal and ceramic
shards...and it has incredible character. It can usually be found
in one of my favourite spots in all of New York, the MoMA sculpture
Describe your personal style and some of your favourite
shopping destinations in New York.
I'm not sure
if it's because I've been working at Baron & Baron for some
time, but I'm painfully minimal, and classic. I love fashion and I
of course appreciate style, but as I get older I find myself
dressing for utility, which I find quite liberating! One of my
favourite places to shop is The Apartment by The Line.
If you could live anywhere in the world, other than New
York City, where would you choose and why?
If I could
take some real time off and have an exploratory year, I would learn
French, bounce around Europe, then end up in Indonesia to spend
time with family.

Tell us a New York secret…
This it a bit
nerdy, but there's a Federal Reserve Bank Tour of New York that
I've been wanting to go on. I've read that 80 feet below the floor
of bank contains 6,350 tons of gold. Foreign governments, central
banks, and official international organisations send their gold to
the New York Fed's vault because it is considered one of the safest
in the world.
If you could have anything engraved on a Monica Vinader
bracelet, what would it be?
