What would the title of your autobiography be?
It would probably be a headstone reading: “All That, For This?” or “Ahh, I Finally Get It Now”

What can’t you travel without and why?
I can’t travel without a good sense of fun. I don’t enjoy travel when it’s regimented and over-scheduled…it tends to steal those magic moments…at least that’s been my experience.

Where is your favorite travel destination?
Europe in general is extraordinary.

If you could choose one person to show you “their New York City,” who would it be and why?
Any civil servant…I think it would be awesome to see a side of the city (how it works and functions) that most of us take for granted.
