  • 1. What’s your go-to travel gear?

    Globetrotter Luggage, I need some new luggage! It will definitely be Globe Trotter, the original series.

  • 2. What’s your go-to travel uniform?

    A Black “Jodorowsky” t-shirt, jeans and an old pair of Nikes that slip off when I go through customs.

  • 3. Can’t travel without?

    An old orange Comme Des Garcons pouch, it holds all of my travel docs.

  • 4. Oddest thing I’ve ever packed:

    It’s not something I packed but, the strangest thing I’ve ever seen packed was going through customs in Saudi Arabia. The man ahead of me had a live tethered falcon on his arm as he went through the metal detector.

  • Favorite thing to nick from the hotel room?

    Laundry bags: If they have a canvas one.
