Dylan and I met through mutual friends in NYC.
Where do you live?
We moved to Southern California in August 2018. Before that, we lived in NYC for 6 years, then moved to upstate New York in the Hudson Valley to renovate a house before our move to California.
Where are you from?
I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Why did you move from NYC to California?
California is where a lot of the people we work with are based, so it was mostly for work reasons.
Do you have recommendations of restaurants and places to stay in NYC?
Our favorite Hotel is the Soho Grand. Favorite restaurants include Buvette, Freeman’s, Two Hands and the Waverly Inn.
What do you eat?
It changes every single day based on what I feel like my body needs, along with the change of seasons! I believe in bio-individuality. We all have different genetic makeups and body types, along with living in different places that require different foods for our individual makeup. My meals are mostly made-up of real foods (fruits, vegetables, etc). I make sure I get lots of greens in my meals, along with healthy protein, fats, etc. and practice the Ayurvedic lifestyle and way of eating. I give myself 2 flexible meals a week where I eat my favorite processed foods, but want to make sure my body doesn’t get run down or inflamed so I try to keep that to a minimum. It’s all about balance!
What’s your workout routine?
I alternate between running/sprints, yoga, resistance training and HIIT workouts 5 days a week.
