LIVES IN / Carnegie Hill, Manhattan
WORKS IN / Bushwick, Brooklyn
OCCUPATION / Co-founder and CEO at Sugarlift
ON THE CLOCK / I’m up early, “run” one lap around the Reservoir in Central Park, and then spend some quality time on the subway reading NYT Now on the way out to Brooklyn. My days consist of meetings with artists, printmakers and collectors. My favorite part of the job is brainstorming and commissioning new artwork with the many talented young artists working with Sugarlift. At night, I love checking out new art show openings or going to an event with the Morgan Library Young Fellow’s or MoMA JA’s. But the nights I look forward to the most are spent at home cooking dinner with my wife, Calvine, and cracking open a bottle of wine.
YOUR ART WEEKEND / My favorite art weekend begins with a trip to the Met on Friday nights. Calvine and I meet at the same place on the front steps where we got engaged. We toast the weekend at the Balcony Bar until the museum empties out and then walk through the Old Masters collection or check out a new show with the galleries to ourselves.

36 HOURS / A summer trip up to Ogunquit, Maine to walk the beach, watch the waves crash against the rocks Winslow Homer-style, cruise with Jack on the Silver Lining, grab a lobster roll and some steamah’s (and a rum punch) at Barnacle Billy’s, and take Calvine out to MC’s in Perkins Cove for the lobster mac-n-cheese. Hit repeat.
