My thoughts about New York
New York is dynamic in every sense. It can be exhausting, but for those with the drive to take it on, there are endless opportunities for discovery.
My New York thrums to the music of young local musicians of all genres—from Lucius to Tim Noyes, Ava Luna to the Spring Standards, Jon Batiste to Kate Davis.
Take a vacation into My life
I grew up in Connecticut (2 hours away from NYC) and lived in Paris for 2 years before returning to NYC.
Enjoying the lunch I’ve carefully prepared for myself or diving into whatever book I’m reading at the time.
Thought-provoking turns of phrases, intelligent design, and experiencing a new culture.
Passionate, loyal and slightly insatiable.
Curious. Cultured. DIY. Health-conscious. Creative.
"Lucky Peach", "The Atlantic", "Co. Design".
And as for recent favourite books:
Cooked (Michael Pollan), The Night Circus (Erin Morgenstern) and A Little Life (Hanya Yanagihara).
I love "Chefs’ Table", "Masters of Sex" and "Orange is the New Black".
I also watch almost any French film I can get my hands on.
But anything with solid acting and interesting character development will pique my interest.
Anyone who knows fun facts about the history, music scene, and/or food culture of wherever we’re flying to.
The Basque Country, Paris, Istanbul, Matera, Colorado, and Scandinavia.
The merit is in the detour.
Weekender with backpack aspirations.
For me, grocery shopping is always the most effective therapy.
a chance to discover—not just a new culture, but also new aspects of yourself and your traveling companions.
incredibly lucky as it stands, but I’m always eager for new experiences.
