How do you stay fit? Last year, I traveled 50 of 52 weeks for work, so I try and stay at hotels that have good gyms. On weekends, I play basketball at the Ritz-Carlton or pickup football with friends.

Where do you hang out? I spend a lot of time in restaurants. My wife and I love Zaytinya, Acadiana, Ceiba, TenPenh. We love the Tabard Inn for brunch.

Got a signature drink? Ketel One martini straight up with a twist of lemon.

What’s your favorite item in your closet? I just got this brown plaid Bur­berry blazer. It’s not the traditional plaid. I get a ton of compliments on it, even from men, which is shocking.

What’s your best feature? I’d say my height. I’m six-foot-four. There is a certain power that comes with size.

What’s your dream career? If I had to do it all over again, I’d love to be a pro basketball player. I was consulting in Korea once, and when I walked into a factory the whole place went quiet. Everyone was staring. They thought I was Michael Jordan.
