Architecturally speaking, what is your favorite building in Miami?
My mother is an architect, so I was raised to love them all, but if I had to pick one, it would be The Helen Mar. It is an Art Deco high-rise at 24th and Collins, on the little waterway. It’s enchanting.
What kind of car do you drive?
A silver BMW 325. It’s my little German tank.
BlackBerry, Palm or paper, and why?
Treo and paper. Treo syncs with my database, but hand notes are faster!

New York, Boston and Palm Beach
