One of Will Shank’s favorite things is to post Facebook self-portraits on Throwback Thursday to remind himself of the good old days when he had hair. He has no television but was recently riveted to Internet reports about the Scottish vote because of his concern that Catalonia, where he lives, might soon fall off the map of Spain. He decided to become a conservator of art when the tragedy of the 1966 flood in Florence grabbed his childhood imagination, and that’s what he became when he grew up. A twist of fate directed him toward modern and contemporary art, and many years later, after restoring Picassos and Rauschenbergs galore at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, he grew bored and decided that what he REALLY wanted to do when he grew up was to be a writer. “He loves nothing better than to explain to visitors to the Prado, for instance, (through the Fodors Guide to Spain) what they should see if they only have an hour to spend there…and WHY.” And to eat in the finest restaurants and stay in some pretty swell hotels (although he has recently been spotted exiting some Airbnb flats in Paris, Venice and Santa Fe). He and his sculptor husband have a beautiful pre-teen daughter who speaks three languages fluently.

Tony Corey was born in the wrong country and the wrong century and truly believes The Great Gatsby was written about him. He is passionate about horses, fine art, fine dining – and vodka martinis. He is a successful designer of men’s accessories and loves his custom suits, though he can often be found knee-deep in horse manure.
A bon vivant and man about town (& country), Tony is also a regular on the Boston philanthropy circuit supporting a host of charities. He loves interior design and real estate and follows both the way some Bostonians follow the Red Sox. “Whether it be a tuxedo or fatigues, I love working with styleboston it as allowed me to cover everything under the sun, which is good because I like to keep my tan going even in the Boston winters.”

Eileen Curran has covered popes and presidents, murderers and movie stars, but she finds it is the stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things that she loves telling the most. (“OK, interviewing Matt Damon did make me look really cool to my nieces,” she said, “so that might be the one exception!”)
She spent nearly 20 years as a TV journalist in Boston, on Fox 25, WBZ and NECN. She has nine (or, is it 10?) Emmy nominations, but still no statue. She jokes: “Yes, I’m the Susan Lucci of local TV!” Her reporting has taken her as far away as Vietnam, and as close as a fatal fire in her Milton neighborhood.

Recovering lobbyist and wanna-be sommelier, Michele Patsos believes that most great memories are made at the kitchen table – or bellied up to at the bar with loved ones. This avid home cook found her love of food at an early age, pulling weeds in her family’s garden and watching her grandparents while they canned, pickled and baked bread from scratch. While not eating or looking up recipes, the wife of Siena College head coach Jimmy Patsos can usually be found crazily cheering from the stands at every basketball game, where he passionately commands the court. She also enjoys running in the woods, especially in the fall and winter and owns an extensive collection of wine corks that she hopes will someday be a part of an important art installation. Her shellfish allergy bums her out and she finds picky eaters really irritating. And she firmly believes no meal will ever surpass her mother’s pho.
