Aside from being chief creative officer of Marvel Entertainment, Joe Quesada (BFA 1984 Media Arts) is a husband and a father who has had to develop the superpower of balancing his personal and professional lives. The New York Times caught up with the 49-year-old Flatiron resident recently to find out how he spends a typical Sunday.
About his sleep schedule, Quesada says: “I could try to oversleep—today, that was 7:30. I’m not a light sleeper, but I don’t get to bed early, ever.”
On weekend family outings: “Sunday is the chance that we get to do something as a family, so we often go to Madison Square Park—Shake Shack has always been a ritual for us . . . As my friend likes to say, I’m a five-block-radius kind of guy, so anything within five blocks of my home is what I set my sights on.”
On personal time: “I am pretty much working all the time . . . I have an iPad that’s set to ping whenever I get an email from work. On weekends, there’s very little pinging, so it’s a good time to sit and draw.”
