known for
Style, creativity and reading people.

where did you grow up?
In the mountains of Slovakia and then the mountains of upstate NY.

are you a social person?
I’d have to admit, mostly no. So much of it depends on the company.

describe your sense of style
Some days I like to be boyish and some days very feminine. Overall a bit bohemian, a bit rock and a speck of conservative prep. I’m not afraid of fashion.

tell me your favorite thing about New York City

The history, I get engulfed in it. And the energy of pure inspiration and hope, at times all of that comes out of failure.

what do you do to unwind?
I like to watch an old classic or a good show with a glass of wine or a cup of tea. Meditation also plays a part.

what’s your favorite thing to do at a party?
Seeing everyone smile laugh, be in the moments and create memories. A party allows us to momentarily stop reality and just enjoy living.

your cocktail of choice?
Vodka on the rocks or bourbon with ginger.

name the goal you’d like to accomplish over the next year
To have my poetry published and finish a novel. Also to fall in love again.
