Morning, noon, or night?
MM: Morning. I am definitely at my best first thing in the morning.
Uptown, midtown or downtown?
MM: Downtown (and Brooklyn).
Oscars, Tonys or Grammys?
Met, MOMA or Movies?
MM: The Dia Beacon and Storm King are my two favorite places to check out art in NY… also love visiting all the galleries.
Football, baseball, or basketball?
MM: Tennis actually! I grew up playing and still love it.
Green tea, black tea, or herbal tea?
MM: Green. Obsessed with Matcha.
Sugar, Splenda, or Stevia?
MM: None! If its good quality, sugar isn’t needed.
Red, white, or rosé?
MM: All… depends on the season. I love to follow the seasons with food and wine. It keeps it fresh – literally.
Spicy, salty, or sweet?
MM: Salty then sweet and repeat. Also not averse to combining the two – chocolate covered pretzels are my favorite.
Sandwich, soup, or salad?
MM: I am on a real soup kick at the moment. So easy to make and very comforting for winter…
Black, white or color?
MM: All black or all white. Very little color!
Is your closet messy or neat?
MM: An organized mess. I have different systems to help keep me organized with minimal effort – similar as to how I have designed my bags. Everyone imagines I am super organized, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. I try to create ways to keep myself in one piece with minimal effort.
What’s your favorite room?
MM: My bedroom.
What do you collect?
MM: Vintage watches
Dream dinner guest?
MM: Michelle and Barack (completely uncensored). I would have so many questions.
MM: Pilates in the morning, visit an art gallery in the early afternoon, then make an early dinner and hit up my yin yoga class. As much as I love to travel, I am equally a home body. My Sunday routine definitely sets me up for the week.
MM: Favorite ﬂower?
Sunflowers. They are tall, strong and bright.
MM: My mom’s grilled cheese (with American cheese and white bread…)
Talent you’d like to have?
MM: I wish I could sing… I am sadly hopeless.
Quality you want to be remembered by?
MM: A blend of polar opposites. I am a walking dichotomy, which is reflected in my work. I worked tirelessly to have each of my pieces balance being equally lightweight as durable; organized yet effortless, perfected craftsmanship yet relaxed. I double majored in sculpture and business – I love art as much as math. I want things to make sense, but in a completely effortless and authentic way.
Best thing about New York?
MM: The energy – there’s absolutely nothing like it anywhere else.
What does Considered Luxury mean to you?
MM: Thoroughly perfected, timeless, purposeful, authentic, uncompromising.
