Where did you grow up?
E. Providence, Rhode Island
What brought you to New York?
What do you do for a living?
I’m a buyer and an artist.
How did you get started?
What’s your favorite thing about your neighborhood?
I love walking home through McGolrick Park at the end of the day.
What’s the last treasure you found?
A Masonic Templar hat to hang aside my Pith helmet, my kitchen island that I snagged at Brimfield, and my very large chalkware Panda are amongst my most treasured finds.
If you were going to eat your last meal in New York, where and what would you eat? The Middle Eastern egg sandwich with extra hot sauce at Bite is one of my favorite NYC treats. (under 5 dollars)
If you could have a sleepover with anyone who has ever existed, who would it be?
I’d like to share popcorn with Vivian Maier and braid Diane Arbus’s hair.
If your life was a TV show, what would be the theme song?
What does New York need that it doesn’t have now?
I think that the MTA should provide more free transfers between subway stations. I also think there should be a livable wage hike.
