What do you love about the Lane?

Everyone is just so incredibly nice! Or, I’m just the new guy.

What would the title of your autobiography be?

How did I get here?

What is your go-to coffee order?

Simple, easy. Just regular coffee, “light and sweet.”

What is the last book you read or movie your watched?

In the middle of the Hobbit…again. And Just finished Thor:Ragnoragamuffin for the umpteenth time.

What song best describes you & why?

Here Comes The Sun by the Beatles. I try to look on the bright side of things as much as I can.

What’s the most useless talent you have?

I can tell you thousands of facts about thousands of films that you never cared about or never want to watch. And I haven’t even seen many of them.

Describe the best museum/gig/play/game you’ve ever been to.

The Pillowman. In a small theatre in Queens. On paper it’s a perfect play. But this particular group of actors made those pages come to life in an all new sort of perfection.

What’s your morning ritual like?

My wife is a teacher and wakes up way to early. So my morning ritual is being woken up by a game of turn-on-all-the-lights-in-the-apartment. Then I fall back asleep. Then coffee, coffee, and coffee.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Drove across country in a tiny car with my wife and HUGE cat and didn’t fight once.

Chocolate or fruity candy?


Last great vacation you took?


Favorite rainy day activity?

Sleeping? Is that an activity?

If you could be an Olympic athlete, in what sport would you compete?


When you’re having a bad day, what do you do to make yourself feel better?

Happy hour. I mean, happy is in the name.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?

Know when to say “no.”

As a child, what did you wish to become when you grew up?

Archeologist. Until I realized Indiana Jones is a terrible archeologist.
