I am a New Yorker, through and through.
Where did you grow up?
Franklin Square, New York.
If you could live in any other place in the world, where would it be and why?
New York is my first choice, but if I couldn’t live in New York I think I’d be pretty happy in Mexico City. It’s like New York, but it has public toilets. It seems like enough of a big city for me and it has a good vibe.
What type of kid were you in high school?
I got good grades, but deep down I was a fool.
If you were a student and had yourself as your teacher, would you meet the standards you hold for your students?
With a vengeance.
