Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m from Roswell, Georgia, originally. I grew up in a suburb outside of the city, and that really framed my whole world for a long time. I always felt like I wanted something more international, more multicultural, having parents who come from different places. I was deciding where to go to law school, and New York was the only thing that came to mind. I’d actually never been to New York, and decided to move there without having ever been, which is kind of like a death sentence for some people. I remember watching some guy on YouTube talk about how miserable New York is [laughs] – to an extent he’s not wrong! It really is a wild place that chews you up and spits you out, and you have to really love it to want to stay here, because there’s a lot of things fighting against you.
