After arriving in New York City from Washington, DC via Amtrak train, my mom drove my caregiver and I to my sister’s apartment to drop our bags off before heading to Time Square. There my mom and I met my sister at the NASDAQ Market Site where we watched a live taping of CNBCs Fast Money which airs at 5 PM daily. Fast Money is a show that my dad and I watch regularly as we are both very interested in the financial markets and follow them closely. My good friend and fellow Georgetown alumni, Guy Adami, is one of the regular market commentators/traders on the show and invited us to the taping at their new set. I have seen the show taped a few times in the past, but this was the first time for my mom and sister. On this particular show, Guy was joined on the trading desk by Steve Grasso, Dan Nathan, Karen Finerman and the show's host Melissa Lee.
Thank you to Guy and the rest of the Fast Money team for showing us a great time. As you can see in the picture, I fit nicely behind the trading desk and so if all else fails it with my current job, maybe I have a future as a CNBC host.
Later that night, my mom, sister and I enjoyed a great meal at The Greenwich Project, a really cute and delicious restaurant in the West Village. If anyone lives or is visiting that area, I highly recommend the restaurant!
