Hometown: Boston, MA, is where I grew up, but I honestly identify more with my time and the friends I made as a young adult in NYC. 

First job: I’ve had several lifetimes of jobs, but my very first one was working at a dry cleaner store when I was in high school.

Favorite ways to spend your free time in NV: I try to balance all the calories ingested with yoga and cycling. I also love Korean dramas.

Your biggest accomplishment and why: Working hard enough to become my own boss, leaving the timeshare industry after over 10 years, and having the freedom to do what I want, when I want. 

The biggest obstacle you overcame: I feel extremely lucky to have not had many obstacles or tough times in life that I couldn’t deal with. If anything, off the top of my head, was the turbulent final year I lived in NYC where I broke up with the person I owned an apartment with, quit my job two weeks later and subsequently sold all of my belongings and moved to Japan to find a new purpose in life, which I fortunately did. 

Someone who inspires you and why: Tom Brady. He embodies the underdog in all of us and has attained multiple achievements in his lifetime through dedication and hard work. If he can keep the fire going after winning seven Super Bowls, there’s room for all of us to do and be more. 

Advice to someone pursuing a career path in what you do: To simply start posting and be consistent with it. Give an actual opinion on the food and work harder at editing videos. I fell into this job; this was never the plan I had in mind.

Favorite quote: “Treat everyone like you have zero followers.” –me

Something someone would be surprised to learn about you: At least in my Vegas circles, people are surprised to find out that I was a music major at NYU and played guitar in multiple rock bands. Guns N’ Roses and Pantera are my favorite bands of all time. People seem to assume I listen to yacht rock or classical.

What makes someone fabulous: That’s hard to generalize. You could name 10 people, and I would give 10 different reasons why each one is fabulous, but it all starts with making the effort to connect with others on some level beneath the surface. That’s where the discovery of the person starts and it’s one of the best things about life.
