A Day in My Life:
What do you love most about Your City?
EVERYTHING! I love New York! Peaceful, Inspiring, Teaching, and Stimulating! The People, Central Park (walking my pup Happy), United Nations, Pizza – I could go on forever!
My favorite dinner & restaurant?
INDOCHINE – the food and scene has never changed since the very first day I dined there, when I first moved to New York! The best TOFU I have ever had – yes I am a vegetarian!
What are you doing at:
6:00 AM – Waking Up – Start the French Press … French Roast Coffee😊
10:00 AM – Working like a dog, and rallying the world to support the underdog!
7:00 PM - Enjoying the city – every week I goto two new restaurants, attend art gallery openings, charity events, disruptive technology meetups, and anything to educate myself more... I will never lose my inner child, and gratefully feed this part of my essence via embracing, enjoying and experiencing life daily!
8:00 PM – This is my wind-down time, when I exhale and prepare for my next busy day of business meetings and events!
11:00 PM – SLEEPING – Nothing good ever happens after midnight outside the bedroom😊!
What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?
Always daily WATER – maybe with a splash of cranberry, and of course lemon (the best antioxidant elixir is lemon especially in the evening before I goto bed)!
Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?
SLICE – the pizza APP! I LOVE pizza and probably eat this 3x per week!
What should everyone try at least once?
ADOPTING a pup! YOGA & Meditation! This body - mind - soul practice might seem intimidating to some people, but honestly my experience has been there isn’t anything better and healthier in life then finding the time for this!
Where do you enjoy getting lost?
Central Park – every Saturday when the weather is good I practice Yoga in Central Park at 8 AM – nothing beats seeing happy my pup playing, hearing the birds and being among Nature in the greatest city in the world (to me😊)!
