Philanthropist and Yoga Enthusiast
I grew up in New York and travel there from my home in LA about once a month. Living in LA provides a great, peaceful lifestyle for my family, but my trips to New York always give me with a muchneeded energy fix—I love the liveliness and the noises of the city. When I’m walking through Central Park and down Fifth Avenue, I get a sense of connectivity I can’t find elsewhere. I always find something new when I’m there, whether it be art installations on the Park Avenue islands or newly opened shops on Madison, such as Céline, Ralph Lauren, and Reed Krakoff.
People tend to look more polished on the East Coast than in LA, and because I’m usually in New York for a board meeting or an event for one of the charities I work with, there are always fun opportunities to get dressed up when I visit. In LA, I have a closet full of evening gowns that get lonely. For evening, I usually stick to metallic accessories so I can use my go-to Kotur gold clutch that I keep in New York, and I always throw gold sandals in my carry-on. Like many Angelenos who are back and forth a lot to New York, I’m a professional at traveling without checking a bag.
