  • People would be surprised to know:

    During law school, I worked as an auxiliary janitor and housekeeper at the hotel my wife managed in Lexington, Virginia. I enjoyed it. I like the inherent satisfaction of leaving a place in better condition than I find it.

  • Five songs everyone should listen to:

    “Vitamin C” by German experimental rock band Can; “Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground” by American gospel blues artist Blind Willie Johnson; “Djougou Toro” by Burkinabe Yéyé group Volta Jazz; “Bridge Over Troubled Water” by American folk rock duo Simon & Garfunkel; and “Alexander Nevsky, Op. 78-II: Song About Alexander Nevsky” by Russian-Soviet classical composer Sergei Prokofiev.

  • In an alternate universe…

    I would be an astrophysicist. My father, a brilliant high school physics teacher, instilled a deep appreciation of physics and astronomy in me during my childhood. In this universe, however, I lack the raw mathematical skills required to work as a scientist in either field.
