Random “about me” stuff:

  • My wife, Suzanne, is a human rights advocate, actress, and former Miss Arab USA. She could have done much better than me.
  • I have two little boys, Sammy and Ronan. I have little doubt that they’ve been plotting my destruction for as long as they have been alive. I love them anyway.
  • I’m related to Thomas Jefferson on my Mother’s side; Jefferson happens to be among my least favorite founding fathers. Such is life.
  • I’m an unapologetic college dropout. I went to the University of New Mexico for almost a full semester. Go locos?
