Any hobbies people are surprised to hear you have?
When I have the opportunity I love trying out all the newest, trendiest restaurants in New York.
Vacation spots you recommend?
Though it’s a long flight from New York, I think Cabo San Lucas is the way to go. The food and beaches are amazing.
Most interesting company you have worked with? (either within your own work history, or a company you worked with in the industry, or both)
I love working at Paul Hastings because my colleagues share such an intense devotion to client service.
Favorite dish to cook?
I love throwing together a slow cooker recipe in the morning, spending all day outside with my family, and then coming home to a warm hearty meal (and plenty of leftovers). The machine is so simple I have managed to perfect some really unusual dishes — from Indian food to Mexican.
See any good concerts or entertainment events lately?
I had great seats to a Yankee’s game a few weeks back. With all the options in NYC it’s hard to go wrong.
