What’s the first information you consume in the morning?
I unfortunately am a coffee addict, so my first conversation is with my espresso maker. And then I’ll check my phone to make sure all is well. Then I listen to NPR on the way to work.
Do you pick up any local magazines or newspapers when you’re at home in Austin?
When I’m at the newsstand, I’m like a kid in a candy store. The brighter the wrapper, the more it attracts me. So I’ll pick up Texas Monthly or D or whatever it is that makes me think, “Ooh, shiny cover story!” I would love to say that it’s more intelligent than that, but it’s not. My parents are huge news junkies—they read all the papers cover to cover every morning and pass along all the good stories. It’s nice, at 43, to have your parents still informing your life.
What are your thoughts on social media?
I’m not into it. I do pretend to tweet my friends on occasion—I mean, I text people hashtags! But I don’t trust myself to be on Twitter. I say whatever comes to my mind, so who knows what I’d put on there.
