What do you love most about NYC?
Really and truly, all of it. When I’m away for more then a week, I miss it… which I believe means I love it.
The Omakase tasting at Jewel Bako. Or pizza.
What are you doing at:
6:00 AM – Chasing 3 more hours of sleep.
10:00 AM – Eating some overnight oats w/ a vegan protein shake and an iced almond latte.
12:00 PM – Trying to stay off my computer. More gets done without it.
7:00 PM – Rehearsing/performing with my comedy troupe
11:00 PM – Walking my girl Stevie in the park- she’s a rescue dog and does better when no one’s around but me and her fragile emotions.
Where do you enjoy getting lost?
In my closet, which is weird, because it’s so small in there, yet I continuously seem to find myself lost.
