What would the title of your autobiography be?
Linger Longer

What can’t you travel without, and why?
I never travel with more than a back pack. One extra pair of pants, 5 t-shirts, 5 pairs of socks and 5 pairs of underwear, and usually a book. I generally find autobiographies to be my go-to books.

Where is your favorite travel destination?
Hydra, Greece is like no place I have been to, before or after.

If you could choose to have one person show you ‘their NYC’, who would it be?
Probably one of the old jazz greats, whether it be Monk, Miles, Parker, or Mingus. Those guys saw a lot in their day and probably would have a lot say (even if i am a cracker, no-good, son-of-a-bitch honkey).

What or who has inspired you recently and how?
That’s a tough one. Probably Nate Lowman, who is one of my best friends. And Chrissie Miller, my girlfriend. Their constant creative output truly keeps me on my toes.
