What do you love most about Your City?

 I like the fact that you can get lost in the forest or parks but yet be so close to lots of restaurants, movie theaters, stores, and NYC.

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

Budwig Protocol with added blueberries, sunflower seeds, cinnamon, granola and raisins. For restaurants anything that serves organic food.

What are you doing at: 

This is my day at home but when I am on the road it would be completely different.

6:00 AM – Yoga, Classic Stretch, or some other form of exercise. Making my first meal of the day, a healthy green shake. Taking a shower and getting ready to head to work.

10:00 AM – Answering emails, working on photos or writing an article.

12:00 PM - Favorite Power Lunch spot/meal?

I prefer something simple, like a baked sweet potato, a salad or homemade soup. I don’t order in. I bring my organic food with me.

7:00 PM -  If I’ve finally left the office then I would probably be home listening to an audiotape and working on the items I sell on Craigslist.


If on the Road:

6:00 AM – Getting ready to go for an audition or acting gig or if at an EQUUS Film Festival Tour Stop then preparing for the day of interviews and Q&As.

10:00 AM – Doing a one-on-one interview or Q&A with someone or working on the story about the event I am at.

12:00 PM – Sometimes on the road it’s more like having nuts and an apple, unless there is a nearby healthy shake place where I can buy a power shake.

7:00 PM -  On the road it’s generally downloading the interviews I did for the day and posting them on social media.


And when on an acting gig it’s spending a lot of time in holding and then doing whatever I’m doing in the gig until the day ends. Every day for me is very different.

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

Generally one bigger cup of tea.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

What’s App is great, especially for international calls. I do more on facebook and twitter than on Instragram.

What should everyone try at least once?

Traveling internationally. It’s a real eye opener about other cultures.

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

Dancing – I love partner dancing: Hustle and Latin.
