Where's your favorite place in the world?

Central Park, NYC. I grew up in Long Island and as kids, we often would go into NYC. As a child, I thought that Central Park was amazing. Turns out, it still is.

What's the craziest thing you've ever done?

I signed up for the Goofy Challenge at Disney World. Its a half marathon race on Saturday, followed by a full marathon, the following morning. Fun fact, I’ve now completed 4 full marathons and completed over 25 half marathons.

What was the best concert you ever attended?

As a kid, I was at the Amnesty International Concert in 1986. The lineup included the Police, U2, Peter Gabriel, Lou Reed, Santana and so many more. As an adult, I would have to say it’s the Foo Fighters in 2018. Unbelievable energy and an amazing catalog.

What's your favorite movie?

The Godfather Part II. It’s the better Godfather.
