WHAT WOULD THE TITLE OF YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY BE?
“He Liked His Eggs Runny”
WHAT CAN’T YOU TRAVEL WITHOUT?
The 35mm camera my mom gave me.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TRAVEL DESTINATION?
Anywhere out west snowboarding: Snowbird, Utah, Sun Valley, Idaho, or Jackson Hole, Wyoming, or most recently, Telluride, Colorado.
IF YOU COULD CHOOSE ONE PERSON TO SHOW YOU “THEIR NEW YORK CITY,” WHO WOULD IT BE?
WHAT OR WHO HAS INSPIRED YOU RECENTLY AND WHY?
Édouard Vuillard, the French painter. His work continues to inspire and awe me every time I look at it. The volume of work he created in his lifetime is astounding, and some of his tiny little paintings are still so complex, even in 10 brush strokes.
