What’s your favorite travel destination, or where would you like to go? ROME! It was amazing to be standing in the ruins of what used to be the epicenter of the world 2,000 years ago, and then looking across the street to see modern day business as usual.
If you could have any other fantasy career what would it be and why? Travel and food writer. I’d travel the world tasting new dishes and cocktails, reviewing art and design, talking to chefs and artists about their inspiration and then finding eclectic and retro little cafes to write.
What is your proudest accomplishment? Giving birth to two healthy and beautiful babies.
What was your first job? When I was 10 years old, I shared a paper route with my sister. Dad ensured we were up before the sun to deliver the Sunday Times.
