Q: What’s something you’ve done that most people haven’t done?

I am a classically trained opera singer. I hold a master’s degree in opera and I’ve sung across the US and Europe.


Q: What’s the best thing about the city you live in?

New York City truly is the center of the universe. There is never a lack of things to do – whether it’s live music, theatre, sports, museums, or dining, there is always something new to explore! I will also never get over that I can catch a Broadway show whenever I want.


Q: What is one career lesson you’ve learned?

Work smarter. You can accomplish much more with a plan of action than if you let your day run you.
