Twinterview: Inspirational Susty Partier Tessa Greenberg
Happy Tuesday and welcome to the next installment in our series of Twinterviews (Twitter-length interviews, that is), where every question is answered by an amazingly Inspirational Susty Partier in 140 characters or less. At least that was the idea... Tessa ran a little over, but regardless, here it goes!
Tessa Greenberg, Creative Director at Tiny Baby Giants, a Brooklyn-based video production company
1. What exactly do you do? What is your claim to fame?
If we were living in the 1920's or 30's, I would just tell you I was an entertainer, and that would sum it up. But, for the sake of living in the year 2012, I will tell you that I make videos, I make music, and I do character based performances. I don't claim any fame yet, though I will claim that my work continues to take on a playful quality that hopefully leaves you a little more optimistic than you did before you consumed it.

2. Describe yourself personally.
Recently someone told me that I was "a riot". Well, okay! I do consider myself an optimist, an enthusiast, and a humorist. I'm also observant. I think at the end of the day, I just want to play an exciting game of show and tell with the world.
3. What inspires you?
I love to see people totally let go of their inhibitions, for example, seeing people laughing really hard is an amazing thing to watch. It's infectious. Laughing until you cry is the greatest feeling I have ever felt. I'm also really inspired by nature and technology.
4. Word association: “Susty”
5. What good media have you consumed recently that we should check out?
This short cartoon by Rebecca Sugar became my absolute favorite video as of yesterday. I also really enjoyed Wes Anderson's new film, "Moonrise Kingdom." It was very pure of heart and thankfully, not in 3D. I don't like 3D movies because the technology messes with the colors and the story telling experience.
6. Your favorite eco-friendly living or partying tip?
Recycling plastics and paper is super easy and there is not excuse not to do it. If you're having a party or a summer BBQ, get 2 waste bins, one for trash and one for bottles and cans. No brainer!
7. Life lesson you want to pass on?
If you're not enjoying yourself, make it a priority to find ways to do so, as long as you're not hurting any one else.
8. Your favorite Susty Party product and why?
Eco Friendly Birthday Party Kit!!! Party time is fun time and when party time is eco friendly, it's even more fun!!
