Who is your favorite fictional hero?

Inspector Jacques Clouseau of the Pink Panther series. You can’t keep him down!

Who is your favorite painter or composer?

A long time ago I stumbled on the works of the French symbolist Odilon Redon. His artistic life moved from one highly distinct period to another—all of them fascinating.

My favorite composers are Johannes Brahms for his symphonies and Hans Zimmer for his film scores.

What is one of your hobbies?

I have a strange obsession with the discoveries and life of the 18th-Century explorer James Cook.

What’s the last you book read?

Cloud Cuckoo Land, by Anthony Doerr. A beautiful, perfect novel.

Why do you do what you do?

I enjoy feeling as though I am adding some value among colleagues and occasionally leaving something enduring and meaningful behind.

What’s your favorite quote?

“No good deed goes unpunished.”

What is your latest accomplishment?

Recently, I finished writing a research report on a national-security topic—something I used to do regularly under my think-tank hat but had drifted away from. It felt good to try again.

What would you say is your chief characteristic?

Impatience.

What makes you happy?

My family. When they are happy, I am happy.
