Who Am I ?


Fall 2012

1: Who am I?

I am someone who loves everyone except people who spew bullshit.

2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?

I am a Director of Sales and Marketing in the hotel industry and I just started my own event planning company.

3: Where are you from and where are you going?

I am from Queens, NY, and I grew up in Trumbull, CT, but I ran back to Queens 15 years ago. I have no plans to leave NYC anytime soon, unless I got an amazing offer to move to San Francisco.

4: Who is your biggest hero?

My Family.

5: What book is your bible?

I really don’t have one. I try to emulate the good qualities I see in different people, but I also have my own opinions on moral standards. No one is perfect because there is no such thing as perfection; believing there is perfection is an imperfection in itself.

6: What are some things you love? And some things you hate?

I love chocolate milk, cookies, volleyball, and super long walks (seriously). I can walk for miles and miles. I just love it. Some things I hate? I absolutely do not like that word. I think it’s awful that we teach it to our kids. I strongly dislike many things, but I simply feel bad for someone who brings me to the point of disliking them so much that I wish them no good.  To answer your question using the word dislike, one of my biggest dislikes is the abuse of animals. I won’t hate you for it, but I do think you deserve the same punishment in return.

7: What is your raison d’être?

To bring happiness to the world.

8: What is your favorite color?


9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

I never really had one.

10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

Central Park, it’s where I can take super long walks.

11: What turns you on?

Men who smile. I love a good smile.

12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

Do you like yourself? It’s an important question.
