What is your favorite dessert? “I go through phases, but I always come back to a good, old-fashioned chocolate chip cookie. Nothing beats a chocolate chip cookie.”

What’s your favorite book from adolescence? “This may be because I read it twice. Before we ever got to it in school, my mom forced me to read To Kill A Mockingbird. I think that’s just a really special document. There’s so much there, and it means a lot to me.”

What’s your favorite smell? “I’ve got a bunch, but I think a campfire is probably one of my favorite smells.”

What memento have you kept from childhood? “I have an old box of all kinds of stuff. When I was a baby, there was this one lullaby that my mom would sing, ‘Hush, Little Baby.’ When I got older, to the point where I spent the night away from home but it was still a time when it was scary to be away from your parents, my mom took a cassette tape and recorded herself singing it, and I would take this tape with me if I would spend the night somewhere. So, I still have that cassette tape. ”

What is a quality you admire in people? “Intellectual humility — and curiosity. The reason I admire curiosity is because it’s a product of intellectual humility.”
