● What is your greatest fear?

  • Isolation, maybe.

What is the trait you most deplore in others? 

  • Narrow-mindedness.

What is your current state of mind? 

  • Getting there. In process. Curious. Asking questions. Working on it.

Which words or phrases do you most overuse? 

  • “In the throes.” Very dramatic of me, and never really warranted.

What is your idea of perfect happiness? 

  • Getting ready with my friends for an outing/event, and winding down with them before bedtime.

What is your greatest extravagance?

  •  Orphéon from Diptyque. I am embarrassed of this.

What is or who is the greatest love of your life?

  •  Such a big question. My fun/less sentimental answer is Fiona Apple. She is my north star.

What talent would you most like to have? 

  • To be fluent in many languages! I think my world would open up.

Who are your favorite writers? 

  • Ursula Le Guin, Tommy Pico, Anne Carson, James Baldwin, Cormac McCarthy, and my father, among others.

What are you watching right now? 

  • Mary and George. And I am rewatching I May Destroy You.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?

  • Anything I’ve done to make my parents and sister proud.

What is your most treasured possession? 

  • Written records of my past. My journals, and any cards/letters I’ve received.

What do you value most in your friends?

  • Lightheartedness/humor, warmth, empathy.

What was your first impression of Stephen? What was your first impression of Jacki? 

  • I am going to combine these questions because I first encountered them as a duo, and what a duo they are. Smart, impressive, and funny. Stephen and Jacki clearly care about each other as much as they care about their work. It is a special thing to witness them bounce off of each other.

What is your favorite restaurant in NYC? 

  • Regrettably I don’t have an answer for this. I will have to consult the growing list of friends of mine who have abandoned me for NYC.

What is your favorite restaurant in LA? 

  • Daichan at the moment!

What is your favorite city to visit? 

  • I visited Berlin for a few days with a friend a couple years ago. I loved that trip. And Bologna, always in my heart.

What excites you about joining B&G? 

  • I am excited to be a part of a firm that is new and growing, and to do some growing of my own. I am humbled by the opportunity to support the B&G team as they provide crucial immigration services to their clients.
