Favorite things about New York, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas

There are so many things I love about each city that I could write a book if I were inclined to do so.

What makes New York City so exciting is the ability to forgo public or private transportation and walk to your favorite stores, beauty salons, restaurants, pharmacies, and even to your office.

Los Angeles is my favorite second city. I love driving on Mulholland Drive and the beautiful mountains and scenery of Los Angeles.  I absolutely enjoy its warm weather and beaches.

Las Vegas is a great city with many appealing activities at a reasonable price. I enjoy attending shows such as David Copperfield, attending NASCAR, hiking in Red Rock Mountains, or having a meal prepared by an acclaimed chef. You can have all this without breaking your wallet!

What drives your interests in sports and entertainment law?

Since childhood, I have always participated in sports, such as soccer, baseball, ice skating, and swimming.  I am also a huge art exhibitions and philharmonic orchestra fan, having attended numerous shows as a child with my parents. I am a big fan of Formula 1. I am a classically trained pianist, having played the piano for most of my life. After my undergrad studies, I worked with clients in sports, media, music, and in the film industry.  

What’s your favorite thing to do during downtime?

I love enjoying time with my friends over a nice meal while listening to music. Also, I love going for long walks.
