What would the title of your auto-biography be?
You CAN Fool All of the People All of the Time

What can’t you travel without and why?
My Mandarina Duck luggage.  I have a burnt orange carry-on with matching laptop case, and a wine colored check-in suitcase.  I love the colors they make.

Where is your favorite travel destination?
I’ve never been much of a beach person, but I really loved my weekend in Tulum this summer.  It still has a fairly rustic feel, and hasn’t yet been overrun by shitty developments and all-inclusive megaresorts.  That, or I could just spend a whole summer eating my way through Spain.

If you could choose one person to show you “their New York City”, who would it be and why?
Jay-Z and Woody Allen on consecutive days.  Can’t think of two people who are more New York than they are, yet are so completely different.

What or who has inspired you recently and why?
Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks… For not backing down from the evil Miami Heat, and silencing all the naysayers by winning an NBA championship this year.
