Q1: What makes you tick, what are you passionate about?
Travel. Adventure. I’m passionate about knowledge, about new ideas and learning. I’m fascinated with life experience and traditions, ancient ways of doing things, ceremony, preparation, sound, language, culture. I guess creativity, I get bummed out if a day goes by with out making something, preparing it, sharing it. That’s why I love being in the kitchen so much. It’s immediate and then I can consume it, feed myself with it, grow it. It’s a powerful thing, every man should cook. It’s as individual as we are.
Q2: What´s your job?
I am Creative and CoFounder of The Brooklyn Salsa Company. I’m an actor. I write. I explore. I’m an explorer.
Q3: How did you end up there?
I arrived in New York after drama school, Rob and I were roommates initially. My first job as a teenager was in the kitchen of a little Mexican restaurant. I made salsa and fried tortillas mostly. For 13 years I was vegan, and salsa has always been a staple for me. So when I moved in with Rob who is our real business man, it was kind of salsa meets entrepreneur and we just said “Let’s do this.”
Q4: What’s a perfect Sunday like?
I sleep in, coffee in bed, make love, get up and cook brunch, make a picnic, take a walk, drink more coffee, find a new book, buy some champagne, get on a boat, lay around for a few hours in the sun, swim off the deck, go home, do whatever I want for a few hours, go by the market and pick up ingredients, cook dinner, get a little beer buzz going, start listening to records, go to find some live music, meet some new people, get inspired, go home, write down my thoughts, read out loud, go to bed, lucid dream.
