What is your motto?
Wherever you go, go with all your heart. ~ Confucius
Where are you most likely to splurge?
Taking trips, I love to be on the move.
Your favorite vacation destination
Italy. Anywhere in Italy really. Wines, cheeses, fresh pastas, historic towns, rolling hills, gorgeous blue seas… what’s not to love?
If you could live at any point in history what point would that be - and why
The roaring twenties in New York or Paris. Flapper dresses and fancy champagne! Yes, please.
What is a piece of information people would be surprised to hear about you
I sunk a boat.
Your worst habit
Eating too late; lunch and dinner.
One thing you have always wanted to do and have not yet done
City slicker it up on a dude ranch.
Who is the most glamorous person you have ever met
My mom’s cousin Linda. She went on a double date with Elvis. No shit.
Pick two celebrities to be your parents.
Liam Neeson in Taken. Nothing beats a 'A very particular set of skills.' And Tiny Fey. That could be a fun combo.
Favorite Instagram account you think everyone should follow.
@FuckJerry. It’s funny.
If you were reborn as an animal, what would you be?
An eagle would be cool. High flying in the skies.
If you could have drinks with 3 people dead or alive, who would it be?
Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake and Bradley Cooper at the same time. Easy on the eyes and seems like a fun group over a few beers. No judgments.
Favorite Restaurant in NYC?
Scarpetta. I can’t get enough of Scott Conant's spaghetti with tomato and basil. Simple & delicious.
Name one song that would be on the soundtrack to your life?
“Only the Good Die Young” by the piano man.
First celebrity crush?
Rob Lowe circa St. Elmo’s Fire
In college someone told me I reminded them of Celine Dion. At least it was after she had her teeth fixed, but still. I had to think about whether or not I wanted to share that tidbit.
If you could have any super power, what would it be?
The ability to teleport so I could be anywhere I wanted to be in an instant; just a quick wiggle of my nose like Samantha in Bewitched and poof a new location.
