Some fun facts…

I speak French and Italian, and I’m trying to learn Dutch. I took one year of German without much to show for it, and I once spent a summer studying Cyrillic whilst sunbathing. I guess I’m not a total beach bum.

I devote my free time to supporting museums and serve on the Board of Trustees of the Amagansett U.S. Life-Saving & Coast Guard Station Museum, the Council of the LongHouse Reserve, and as a volunteer to the digital marketing team of The Jewish Museum of New York.

In 2016, I founded Mo. Import Co., a curated selection of shops + objects sourced from travels and wanderings. I no longer do roadshows, but D.I.Y. and interior decorating still put a bee in my bonnet.

I shoot with a Sony DSC RX 100 and an iPhone6.
