Where’s your hometown? Krakow, Poland. Born there, moved to America when I was 8.
Your favorite food? That’s a hard one because I love food, but I’m going to go with anything that involves potato. Because potato is the greatest food ever created. It is delicious and incredibly versatile: you can have it as dinner for example mashed potatoes, it can be turned into a snack like potato chips, and it can be turned into a liquid. Genius!
Song you love no matter how many times you hear it: Anything by Dragonette, because they are the best band most people haven’t heard of. I could also listen to Amanda Palmer forever.
A country you’d like to visit? I would like to visit the world! But I guess at the moment Japan, Greece, and Peru top my list.
What did you want to be when you grew up? When I was little I wanted to be a teacher, chef, actress, spice girl…..the usual.
What was your first job? My first job was a hostess at the chic and trendy Ruby Tuesdays. I know what you’re thinking: how did I ever land such a glamorous job? Two words: industry contacts.
A book you strongly recommend? Stiff by Mary Roach, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by the amazing Oliver Sacks, and the super addicting Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson
A sport you enjoy playing (or watching)? I LOVE playing and watching volleyball, Keri Walsh may be the best volleyball player around. I also greatly enjoy watching soccer, though I’m still not ready to talk about Germany.
…Favorite places in NYC? Mayahuel – my favorite place to eat; Hudson River Park – its a great place to take a walk, run, read, people watch, sit and relax; The Mars Bar!!!!! – ok technically since it closed a few month ago it is no longer a real place, but it will ALWAYS be a part of my soul.
…Best places to read? The subway, any NYC park, and the LIBRARY of course!!
Strangest thing ever done: One afternoon I sat through an introductory seminar at the Scientology center in NYC…..it was frightening.
