Proust Club: Dave Horesh

We’re asking the Block Club team a few questions from the famous Proust Questionnaire, popularized by the famous French essayist and novelist. This famous interview style has been interpreted many times over, from Vanity Fair’s popular last-page profile to “Inside the Actor’s Studio.” Today’s questionnaire is with Dave Horesh, Block Club partner and director of strategy. Let’s see what Dave has to say…

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Perfect happiness is waking up early on a sunny, warm Saturday morning with no plans whatsoever.

Summer 2010. I was 23 and my now-wife and I moved into our first apartment with our new puppy Oxford.

When people demonstrate a lack of empathy for one another.

Obliviously.
