What does joy mean to you?
Joy is that instant satisfaction in your belly that, in this very moment in time, all is pure and right.
What are some of the small things you celebrate?
I love celebrating small victories and milestones, like half birthdays or ending a tough but successful week of work.
Tell us about a really special time in your life, and why you treasure it.
Our family moved across the country, from NYC to Los Angeles, at the start of Covid. It felt so wrong and so right at the same time—so many risks, so many rewards. Everything from the packing and storing of our life possessions, to the AirBNBs along the way, to the RV road trip we took through Yosemite, to the simple suitcase of necessities we all lived out of for months—the entire experience left us with the gift of family bonding on another level.
We all have trying moments. What is something positive you did or chose to focus on to keep you moving forward?
It's hard for me to get truly stressed out or overly filled with anxiety in general. I have a really practical brain and constantly compare my trying situation with someone in a much worse position. It's impossible for me to get upset when I know I have so much to be thankful for—specifically my health and my family. That's all we need.
Tell us about someone who's been a positive influence
in your life.
My mother has always been the most supportive throughout my entire life. She guides me in the right direction.
Last but not least: what's your favorite cake flavor?
