For a lot of the time I was in Berkeley, I was single. I was living in a kind of collegiate apartment by myself – it was like a protracted summer vacation. So at least in hindsight, I have gloomy emotions attached to Berkeley, whereas I started coming to New York because I was dating someone, and it was very exciting and romantic.
Hyperbolic headlines always attract more attention than mundane truths.
I understand how a first impression is often just that: a quick snapshot that, on its own merit, is meaningless.
I don't shy away from competition.

As my father used to tell me, the only true sign of success in life is being able to do for a living that which makes you happy.
There have been times when I've been broke, and a job came along, and I've said, 'Yeah! Let's do it!' But I will never do something without having a feeling of knowing how to play it. I've been in projects that I felt terrible about afterwards, but I've always had something that sparked me while I was doing it.
