First Job: “From age 14 to 17, I spent every Saturday babysitting four kids. Dealing with that many personalities and their occasional meltdowns, I learned valuable lessons in problem-solving. When you’re a producer, you need a backup plan for your backup plan.”
Side Note: “As a huge tennis fan, I’ve traveled the world to watch tournaments. And yet somehow I’m a terrible player.”
