The book that changed my life...

My friend lent me her copy of Jenny Offill’s Dept. of Speculation three years ago and she’s never getting it back. Also, anything by Miranda July — even an Instagram caption (I mean, this Rihanna interview).

The most amazing meal I've ever had...

 Am I allowed to say Shake Shack? There, I said it.

The morning and nighttime routines I swear by...

Morning: I try not to check my phone until after I’ve done three things a few no-tech human behaviors. I’ll shower (Origins’ Zero Oil cleanser with Saw Palmetto & Mint is the one product I’ll never swap), make coffee (La Colombe’s Corsica blend), and walk my dog (this guy) before I jump back into the digital world.

Nighttime: The exact opposite of my morning routine. I’m glued to my phone catching up on the news and last-minute emails.

The best décor hack I've learned...

My sister-in-law bought me this light-up cactus, and everyone kept asking where I got it — she eventually told me it’s designed as a nursery night light, which made me realize: Adults can scoop some stylish deals from the kids’ section, too.

My interior stylist spirit animal is...

I haven’t seen a single thing I haven’t liked from the Studio Tack team.

The Instagram handles I follow religiously are...

I’m a little bit of a grandpa so I stick to following the news, but @newyorkercartoons is a necessary indulgence.

This season, my go-to cocktail order is...

I’m heading straight to Fort Greene’s Miss Ada for the Veridian: Tequila, Serrano, Cucumber, Lime, and Cilantro. Luckily, it’s in walking distance.

The first lesson I learned as an Adult with a capital A...

Just because you love someone, it doesn’t mean they need to love you back.

The most surprising thing I learned from a MyDomaine story is...

My nighttime routine is the exact opposite of a healthy routine.
