OFF THE CLOCK
Hobbies: Playing basketball, tennis, skiing, playing my guitar, working on (experimenting on) his house.
Favorite movie: “The Thin Man” “I like the attitude: Nick and Nora solve the mystery and get things done, but make sure they’re enjoying themselves along the way.”
Favorite food: Risotto. “I even taught myself how to make it, although I’m a terrible cook.”
“In college I majored in philosophy and I boxed. So in between reading Descartes and Nietzsche, I trained pretty seriously and my junior year I entered the Golden Gloves regional tournament in Lowell. I ended up being the 1999 novice division champion in the 200 lb. weight class.”
