A Day in My Life:

What do you love most about Your City?

The five mountain ranges that surround the city and the warm sunshine 360+ days per year!

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

I don’t like breakfast, so I would say, chicken salad on a toasted gluten-free bagel at the Commack Diner, Long Island, New York.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM – waking up and getting ready for my 7am Pilates class.

10:00 AM - facilitating a consultation group, psychodrama group therapy or rubbing my kitty’s belly, depending on the day of the week.

12:00 PM - Favorite Lunch spot/meal?

Salad and soup at Sweet Tomatoes Salad Bar restaurant.

7:00 PM - Sitting at the kitchen table, gazing into my wife’s eyes while we catch up on each other’s day.

11:00 PM - Fast dead asleep.

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

I need my Dunkin Donut’s decaf large coffee with two pumps of cream and two sweet’n lows to get through the day. At night, a cup of decaf chai tea hits the spot.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

I have to admit I am addicted to Facebook. I do not even know how to use Instagram.

What should everyone try at least once?

Traveling to experience a different culture and landscape.

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

On any beach in the world.
