Why did you curate the Alexandra Taylor Scarves and what do you love about them? Alexandra Taylor’s design is simply perfection. The symmetry of the prints and the colors make them unique and stylish. I applaud designers like her who create beauty that provides for less fortunate people, especially children in Africa.
Favorite meal: Anything Peruvian.
Recent purchase: A pair of French iron garden obelisks...perfection.
Hidden talent: I can sing.
Book/film recommendation: Buddhism Plain and Simple by Steve Hagen.
Restaurant recommendation: BareBurger…Have the Ostrich burger.
If I had $20, I’d… Treat a friend to some good ice cream.

If I could solve one problem, it would be: Loneliness.
