  • Who do you look to for inspiration?

Leonard Bernstein, Stevie Wonder, Shostakovich, Mom and Dad, Jeanine Tesori, Oprah.

  •      What is the one thing you hope to accomplish this year?

Within the DG fellowship, to write and edit as much as I can to make Mark’s and my piece the best possible version of itself.

  •      What’s the best (or worst) job not related to your career you ever had?

I’ve had to arrange a fair amount of Christian Rock music for choirs and brass bands. Still sort of career-related. Fun for a Jew to do.

  •      Where would you rather be if you couldn’t be here doing this?

Skiing.

  •      When did you decide you were going to take over the universe?

On the 23rd day of the month of September, in an early year of a decade not too long before our own…

  •      Why would you ever stop writing, if you ever stopped writing?

Arthritis.

Google calendar.
