What was your first job, and how did it shape your life?
Mergers & Acquisitions analyst for Morgan Stanley in Silicon Valley in the late 1990’s. I learned true and lasting value was by the builder. It made me want to create things rather than be a banker.
What was the last present you gave someone?
I gave my wife a black Costume National Dress I purchased in SoHo last weekend (For 85% off).
What was the last present you received?
My son Julian Jack was born on March 2, 2016 and he is happy and healthy.
When do you feel most free?
On long walks over the weekend along the waterfront on the west side of Manhattan.
What books are currently on your bedside table?
The Lorax and the Cat in the Hat (I have a 2 year old)
What is an extraordinary place you have recently traveled to?
I attended a wedding this past fall in Joshua Tree. The ceremony took place at sundown under an endless night sky and limitless landscape of rolling desert hills illuminated by stars so bright it appeared out of a children’s book.
