Your favorite Restaurant: It would have to be @seedsforthesoul

for breakfast, @makiramen for lunch, @civerinos pizza, and parmesan, truffle fries for dinner, and @LocandadeGusti for phenomenal seafood pasta pretty much any time of the day.

What do you usually order: At Ceverinos it would usually be pepperoni pizza, Parmesan truffle fries, burrata salad, coleslaw. At Makiramen I am obsessed with their ramen and gyoza. But I’ve tried a lot of the menu and you can’t go wrong.

Autumn. The colors are magnificent.

If you could live in any city in the world? You would choose ... It would either be Korea or Rome. I’ve been to both and they both blew me away. I’ve been to over 35 countries and every single city is beautiful in its own way. Some flourish in daylight and some only wake up at sunset.
