  5. What piece of art – book, movie, music, artwork, etc. – inspired you the most and why?
    I get great pleasure from all forms of art, especially music. The Beatles are my favorite band. Not only because they composed some of the greatest pieces of pop music of the late 20th century but because their music and perspectives evolved and matured over their amazing 10-year career. Curiosity and growth inspire me in all endeavors.
