Managing Editor, Spotlight
What’s your favorite show on TV?
My television viewing is limited to Netflix and Amazon Prime, so many of the shows I like to watch are from the past. “Newsroom” was something I caught on too late in its run. I’m a sucker for a well-written show, and that one fits the bill; as did “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”
What was the last movie you saw?
Based on the timing of this question, I think I fit in with most people when I say, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
Could you describe what your dream vacation would be?
Simply to have a vacation. I don’t seem to allow myself to have one.
What are some of your hobbies?
Writing. Reading. Researching for the book I will never write. Otherwise, there is a dice-baseball game a friend and I developed a few years ago. I’d like to play with that more.
Who is one person (dead or alive) that you would most like to meet?
Brian May of Queen. There is no one more fascinating than an astrophysicist who plays guitar, writes beautiful songs and shared the stage with Freddie Mercury.
What is your favorite local moment?
My childhood winters sledding down the hills behind Elm Estates, or the countless of games played with neighborhood friends on the Slingerlands Elementary School playground. Sports was always big for me, so playing baseball for my hometown is a memory I will always cherish.
What is something you think most people would be surprised to learn about you?
My family and I have a habit of quoting from “Bob’s Burgers” a bit too often.
What three things would you bring to a deserted island?
I always found this question to be silly. Whatever you choose will lose its value over time. So, I’m going to flip the script: People. The ability to grow food. The infrastructure of Manhattan (with fewer people.)
