Something about Brearley that appealed to you: diversity and excellence, as a reflection of NYC: a strong cultural identity open to the world.
Favorite food (sweet, savory, etc.) Au Menu: Velouté de potiron en entrée, bœuf Bourguignon, assiette de fromages-baguette et un opéra biscuit Joconde en dessert...
Coffee or tea (or neither): coffee in the morning and tea in the evening
Favorite music/band: from Bach to Jay Z, Britpop to the French Touch or from Brel to Angèle that my children helped me to discover
Favorite thing about working in New York: waking up in a city that never sleeps
Hobbies: Art & Literature. I have the chance to pursue a PhD . . . in the very heart of New York.
Fun fact(s) about you: I spend every summer in a 16th-century house that we restored with friends, ten years ago, in the South of France.
