When I look at skills to stay ahead of the curve for the next 10, 20 years, I really think a lot about leadership. I think that is the one thing that if you’re really good at, you can get anywhere.

It’s my job to try and make the audience understand something I’m trying to express. So, it’s not the audience’s fault if they don’t like something I did. It’s not the audience’s fault if they don’t get it. It’s my fault.

I actually didn’t really like high school very much. You know, I had friends in different places, and I wound up having a really amazing core group of friends towards the very end.
