I am the co-founder of We Roam, a travel while working remotely company.
What’s your historical Los Angeles and New York connection?
I’m from the LA area, family all still there, and moved to NYC almost a year ago after 3.5 years in SF. .
What do you love about both cities, and what were the biggest challenges of moving from the west coast to NYC?
I absolutely love LA…the weather, the people (mostly), the active lifestyle. I love NYC for it’s hustle and bustle, the culture and how empowered the city makes you feel. The transition for me was very smooth, most likely because I was already very familiar with NYC.
How can NYC and LA best engage with each other?
Starting off with a platform like this is great. This day and age, multiplying everyone’s connections in common cities gives us the ability to find what/who we need with a group/platform like this.
Favorite LA secret spot:
Bar Nine. Best coffee/work spot in Culver City.
Favorite NY secret spot:
Cotenna, West Village. Shhh.
If you weren’t building what you were now, what would you be doing or building?
I started my company based on something that I’d love to do, so can’t say that I’d be doing anything else!
Inflight Entertainment: What song/album/podcast/show have you been engaged with lately?
Currently, new Kanye or Drake album. Prefer iPad to in-flight and I pack it with all seasons of The Office. Classic.
