One time at a party at my house, my dear friend and at the time roommate Michael made a confession. He told us his guilty pleasure song: Cher's "If I could turn back time." When the party was just breaking up, and guests putting on coats, he cranked it up on his stereo, and we had a huge laugh.

My best friend today is Rob. He inspires me with his work, believes in me, helps me, and always, always, makes me laugh.

5) What is something you've always wanted to say to the world?
When you're going slow, choose the right lane.
