Favorite Mexican dish?
Ah! So many… As a non-Mexican I have always been enamored with traditional Mexican dishes: chilaquiles, mole poblano, chiles rellenos, etc... That being said, I am a huge fan of the Mexican contemporary cuisine movement - Enrique Olvera and his likes display a great deal of artistry.

Favorite quote?
La union hace la fuerza ("Union makes strength").

Hangover cure?
Select One:
a) Hot shower. Sleep. Espresso (in bed). Sleep.
b) Cold shower. Friends for Brunch. Michelada & a side of Mezcal.

Your best skill?
You could say I’m a connector by trade… I love putting people in touch that can achieve great things together! There is nothing better than to see those you love succeed.

What do you wish you could find from Mexico in NY?
A wider selection of products from young artists & designers. Not only from Mexico, but Latin America in general.  (#slowclapforMiscelanea)
