The Checklist

What are your favourite smug ‘offices’?
My Nolita backyard, a balcony at Mr. C Beverly Hills, and a First Class suite on Emirates

What's the most off-the-grid travel experience you've had lately?
I went on an eight-day road trip around Iceland that was pretty awesome. Also, I have a 10-day paddling trip in Temagami coming up. I will have zero cell service for that.

Akin to Super Bowl winners saying, ‘I'm going to Disneyland!’ after the big game, what's the one destination you immediately think of after a photo shoot wraps?

Do you have any favourite travel hacks?
Make the flight attendants love you and travel enough so you know them on a first-name basis.

What are your thoughts on out-of-office messages? Leave one? Don't leave one? Keep it simple? Make it poetic?
I don’t leave one. I’m never in the office, but never out of it either.

Do you have a go-to vacation emoji?
The sun, wave, and palm tree

If you could ‘accidentally’ pick up someone else's suitcase at baggage claim, anyone in the world, whose would you pick?
Neil Young’s – so I could return it.

In your opinion, what's the most fashionable airport in the world?
St Barths!
