What one person, living or dead, would you want to spend a day with and why?
I could not pick just one person; John Roberts, Joel Rosenman, Artie Kornfeld, and Mike Lang, the four young men, oldest 27, who organized the Woodstock Festival, would be my choice to spend a day with because, through their fervor and hard work, were able to create an event that not only would hundreds of thousands of people enjoy, but also that was not done for profit. These men believed in music and I would have like to share in that passion with them at Woodstock.
Tell us something that most people don’t know about you.
I always wanted to be an EMT, I think first responders are amazing dedicated people that show no fear during a crisis while providing an enormous amount of compassion for victims.
If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?
