"I love what I do, but I think for me, it’s not about loving it or not loving it. It’s whether I feel like I’m doing what I should be doing or I'm supposed to be doing. For me, the questions are more about how can I get more of it done or how can I do it more effectively. I feel like I’ve created a position for myself, where I really get to choose what I respond to and how I want to respond.."
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Philadelphia in a neighborhood called Roxborough until I was twelve and then we moved to a suburb called Lafayette Hill, which is one town a way from the Philadelphia city limit. Roxborough, at least it was then, was a working class community and my memories of the people there are really the neighbors I grew up with and the kids my age. I grew up in an apartment complex and there was kind of a big courtyard in the center of. It was a gentler version of Lord of the Flies.
