WHAT WOULD THE TITLE OF YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY 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 mega-resorts. 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.
