“I’m Still Alive?”


What can’t you travel without and why?
iPhone. No explanation needed.

If you could choose one person to show you “their New York City,” who would it be and why?
Diane von Furstenberg. Uptown, downtown, the past and the present, I think she must have seen and done some amazingly exciting stuff.


What or who has inspired you recently, and why?
A curator from a museum. How he looked at art was fascinating and amazing… like a child who’s so excited with a simple thing like ice cream.  You would think he would be like “Oh, I’ve seen this before.”

I still listen to music I grew up with in the 80’s.  The Smiths, Siouxsie, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, Madonna (80’s), R.E.M., etc.


What album or song would you consider your personal soundtrack to NYC?
No joke…Frank Sinatra’s theme song from New York, New York.
