Why did you curate the Queue cigarette lighter and what do you love about it? Of all the tools and accessories around my kitchen or in my purse, the plastic lighter remains a ghastly sight. Thankfully I discovered the QUEUE metal stick lighter, a sleek, elegant product at the cross section of beauty and functionality.
Favorite meal: Anything doused in truffle oil.
Recent purchase: A massage.
Hidden talent: I can make a W shape with my tongue.
Book/film recommendation: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.
Restaurant recommendation: the Graveyard menu at L'Express, NYC.
If I had $20, I’d…: buy a L'Amande Pastis and Onion soup gratinée from Pastis, NYC.
Transformative travel experience: Paris Fashion Week.
Favorite neighborhood: Greenwich Village, NYC.
Dream holiday: Rainforests and beaches in Bali.
If I could solve one problem, it would be: World hunger.
I wish people cared more about: Helping each other.
Recent big aha!: Finding that most things when lost, end up under my bed.
The world would be a better place if: Everyone knew at least one good joke.
