What’s your favourite travel destination in the world?
I think my favorite spot is still Joshua Tree National Park, which is both beautiful, treacherous and super-fun. There is a groovy little saloon there called Pappy and Harriets that has the best food and also hosts amazing concerts. I think Paul McCartney has played there, along with bands I love like Yo La Tengo and Lucinda Williams.
Your desert island disk?
I can’t pick just one, but if I have the Bee Gees, Velvet Underground and the Clash I can probably survive eating nuts and berries for a few months at least.
Plan everything or keep it flexible?
Plan everything and have a back up plan to the back up plan. I’m an engineer – we don’t leave things to chance.
Beach or mountains?
Mountains. I actually hate the beach, but its my spouse’s favorite place so I end up there all the time. Sand is not my friend.
Fancy restaurant meal or homecooked comfort food?
Fancy restaurant all the way. Cooking at home means you have to clean up. Yuck.
If I wasn’t part of Travelport’s SLT, I’d be…
Working as a bartender at some swank music theater in Hollywood.
