"My approach tends to be from experiments. I need the challenge. If I know how to do something well, there's no need to do it all the time because it becomes a little monotonous. So I like to find a challenge."
"My first encounter with even thinking about politics, what it meant to be an American and thinking that it wasn’t secure, came as a real jolt when I became aware of the Second World War, maybe in my last year in high school. Being a Midwesterner from Chicago, I didn’t really think we were vulnerable until the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. We were literally oceans apart from the rest of the world until then, not just physically but mentally."
