Fill in the blanks: "Sharp wit is sexy; vulnerability is sexier."
Most humbling moment: "Dangling by a rope wrapped once around my wrist, 100 ft. in the air, from a hot air balloon."
In my bedroom, you'll find: "Myriads of books on the sociology of baseball."
Most humbling moment: "My first yoga class."
In my bedroom, you'll find: "Lace, altar, silver, beeswax."
If I could be anywhere at the moment: "I'd be in a helicopter - anywhere will do."
