Best meal you’ve ever eaten (what, where, with who?)- I just had some amazing barbecued brisket at the Prohibition Pig in Vt. with my wife, but “best”?  That’s hard to say.

Biggest vice? -I am a bit of a control freak…does that count?

Favorite social media hash tag? – #princetonrecordexchange (natch!)

Princeton’s Biggest Secret? – I love all the parks around town, but Marquand Park in particular is a little under-used gem with an astonishing variety of rare trees

Three musicians, dead or alive, you’d invite to dinner? – I think John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk would make for a lively party!
