What was your favorite subject in school? 
Marine biology, because the ocean fascinates me.

If you won $100 million, what would you buy first?
A Tesla Model S.

If you had to choose just one place to vacation every year for the rest of your life, where would it be?
The Galapagos Islands for the diverse plant and animal life. And who doesn’t like tortoises?

If someone were to make a movie about your life, who would you hope would play you?
Nicolas Cage or Jeff Goldblum, two of my all-time favorite actors.

If you had to teach something, what would you teach?
Definitely English in a foreign country. Perhaps in Thailand or Indonesia.

Do you have a favorite quote or saying that inspires you?
“Life’s a garden. Dig it.”

If you could try out any job for a day, what would you like to try?
I want to say President of the United States, but that seems like a stressful day. My second choice would be rodeo clown.

Which Muppet is your favorite?

What was the last great movie you saw?
Over the Top, an arm-wrestling Sylvester Stallone film from the ’80s. It’s a timeless classic.
