Name: Kyle Peterson
Current occupation at BKI: Store Manager in Bay Ridge
Hometown: Minneapolis, MN
Now living in: Washington Heights
Currently obsessed with: Rupaul’s Drag Race. #TeamJinkx
Favorite place to eat: Cafeteria in Chelsea simply for mac and cheese spring rolls.
In my fridge today: Leftover Domino’s and delectable German beer (priorities!)
Favorite dive bar: Rudy’s in Hells Kitchen hands down. Cheap pitchers and free hot dogs. Duct tape booths complete the ambiance!
Favorite thing to do in BK during the Summer: My favorite place in NYC is the Brooklyn Bridge. I love when I end up in DUMBO over the summer so I can walk the bridge into Manhattan.
Favorite BKI Tee: Forever Jung
If I had a super power it would be… teleportation. Just think how much time you’d save!
When I was 16, I was wearing: Sadly, oversized track hoodies (not in an ironic way), “witty” t-shirts and JNCO jeans. It was a rough time.
Favorite book: The Silmarillion by Tolkien or really anything by Tolkien.
On my iPod right now: An amalgam of Robyn, Gaga, Cher, Simon and Garfunkel, and Death Cab with a smattering of (classic) rock and a healthy dose of showtunes.
Favorite Blog: I’m lame and don’t read many blogs but the one I look at the most often would be Rachel Maddow’s.
How I Live, Work, Create: I spend a lot of time thinking about future projects I’d like to do in film or photography. I should be starting one soon, but first I need a camera. :/
