When not at work, where would we likely find you?

When I’m not at work you will probably find me curled up on the sofa trying to make a dent in the stack of unread New Yorkers on my coffee table.


What is the one app or program you simply cannot live without?

Google Maps. I have a terrible sense of direction.


What is your life motto/mantra you try to live by?

“Everyone is running their own race, in their own time. Do not envy them and do not mock them. They are in their time zone, you are in yours. Life is about waiting for the right moment to act. So, Relax. You’re not late. You’re not early. You are very much on time.”
