Cofounder and CEO of the men’s fashion label Alton Lane
Summer in the city means: Rooftop grilling, brunch in the West Village and exploring the city on the weekends while everyone is in the Hamptons.
What he’s working on: Developing Alton Lane into the next full lifestyle brand. We’ve got some exciting new products coming out this summer and fall. I’m also identifying projects and partners as we fully roll out the Alton Lane Better World initiative.

Summer in the city means: I’ve never spent a summer in NYC, but my friends here say it means digging your air conditioner out of the bottom of your closet and putting it in your window. Also, it means a lot more drinking.
What he’s working on: I’ll be in Detroit working on an Indie film called The Darling Brothers. Also look out for Charlie St. Cloud with Zac Efron, coming out this fall.

Summer in the city means: Midnight walks with my dog, Stella, through the city’s most iconic streets with my iPod on shuffle. Sweating, of course; people watching. It’s how I do my character research. I find a person who interests me and I study them. Love watching them from afar.
What he’s working on: After The Joneses, I’ve been working on getting into Gotham’s “Boys of Winter” issue!
