Where were you during the hurricane?
I went to my parents’ house in Riverhead, Long Island, because I thought it might be safer. But then we lost power for four days, and there was no heat or gas.
How was braving the blackout with your parents?
Hell. I usually go home for a day or two at a time, so it got hectic being stuck in the house together.
And what about the election?
This was the first time I was able to vote. It’s like I’m part of the change for once, and it’s very exciting.
Aside from dodging storms and electing presidents, what do you do?
I have small parts on season two of HBO’S Girls and a show called Smash. I’m moving to L.A. in the spring to pursue my dreams.
Will you miss New York?
Nope. I’m from here. I’m over it.
