What do you love most about Your City?

Palm Beach is a fantastic place to live, work, and raise a family. Like New York, it’s an island, packed with smart people and terrific restaurants. But Palm Beach is unique in several respects.

First, it is the closest spot in the United States to the gulfstream, which provides a surprisingly temperate climate year-round. If you’re an athlete, you can swim, bike or run every morning.

Second, while it attracts outstanding people, it lacks the density of a big city, so it’s easy to go quickly from one place to another. A traffic jam in Palm Beach typically means a few minutes for the bridge to go down.

Third, it combines a small-town feel with global reach. Palm Beach has been the site for two Winter White Houses, serves as the home for dozens of billionaires, and is building world-class institutions including new schools, like the Greene School. As a result, we are seeing an influx in young families moving here from the northeast.

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

I’m a triathlete, so normally breakfast is a fruit and vegetable shake in my kitchen. If I’m going out for breakfast, I might go down the street to Cucina, which is a local favorite.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM At 6am, I am either headed to the airport or getting ready to swim, bike or run.

10:00 AM - If I’m in town, I’ll be at my standing desk, working.

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

I’m a workaholic. I don’t usually leave my office for lunch. If I go anywhere, it is likely to be to a nearby restaurant in West Palm Beach, like Avocado Grill.

7:00 PM – My children are still young (11 and 9). So if I’m not traveling, I’ll go home to see my kids and have a family dinner. After I put them to bed, I’ll go back to my laptop to work.

11:00 PM - Finishing work!

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

I’m not a weekday drinker! Lots of water and fruit/vegetable shakes.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

Flight apps, like JetBlue!

What should everyone try at least once?

Swimming in the ocean.
