What was your first job?
My first job at 16 years old was at Chuck E. Cheese. I prepped for and hosted birthday parties. No, I didn’t dress up as the main mouse, but do you remember his bandmate, Mr. Munch?
What do you want to be remembered for?
I want to be remembered for being a kind, compassionate person. Giving back is an essential part of existence.
What are you passionate about personally?
I enjoy traveling to new places, meeting amazing people, and discovering something unusual. One of my favorite quotes about traveling is from Anthony Bourdain: “Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But, that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”
What is your drink of choice?
A well-made Bulleit Rye Manhattan is my drink of choice, however you can also find me poolside with a glass of rosé.
If you owned a yacht, what would you call it?
New number, who dis?
