What’s your historical Los Angeles and New York connection?
Gossip Girl. If we’re close, you know, and if not, maybe i’ll tell you over drinks one of these days 😉
Describe your experience in LA.
Bliss. I’ll go toe-to-toe against anyone who attempts to put down this great city.
Describe your experience in NYC.
A whirlwind of great stories, great food, late nights, and most of all, amazing people.
What was the biggest challenge of moving from LA to NYC (or vic versa), or simply in splitting time?
While I’ve never lived full-time in NYC, I certainly see myself as bi-coastal in spirit. Biggest challenge… farewells. I love both cities and always hate to say goodbye.
How can NYC and LA best engage with each other?
Capitalize on each other’s strengths and weaknesses. NYC is a city of heads down, thumbs up doers and LA is a city of limitless dreamers — together we can take over the world!
Favorite LA secret spot:
I went to this nameless restaurant/lounge (it’s anonymity strictly enforced) on Fairfax last week. Seems a worthwhile contender at the moment.
Favorite NYC secret spot:
Not sure it’s much of a secret, but was blown away by the drinks at Angel’s Share! The bartenders exhibit a level of precision and discipline one might only imagine at a Japanese speak.
If you were not at The THIRST! Agency, what would you be doing?
Answering these questions, probably answering someone else’s questions… around launching a new brand or start-up or simply making something existing POP!
What’s on your playlist right now?
Everything from King Krule to King Harvest to Nat King Cole.
