What was your earliest ambition?
To be a sports announcer like Bob Costas.

I work out four times a week, but I wish I ate more healthy!
How politically committed are you?
Very committed. Particularly, excited for President Obama's re-election campaign.
When and why did you decide to enter politics?
When I was 25, I successfully ran for the Hartford City Council. I felt the City Council needed to have representation of a young professional since we are constantly trying to attract that demographic.
Do you consider your carbon footprint?
What ambitions do you still have?
To see the Red Sox return and win the World Series.
What is the greatest achievement of your life so far?
Getting married to my wife, Marilyn Katz. The most wonderful person I have ever met.

Losing some loved ones too early.
If your 20-year-old self could see you now, what would he think?

At what point in your life were you most frightened?
22- graduated from college, came back to Hartford and realized it was time to start working and adjust to a new life.

10. Again, I married Marilyn.
Book that changed your life?
Tocqueville's Democracy in America.
Dream political dinner pow-wow?
Power or money?
Bad question! Neither guarantees happiness... but winning $10 million someday in the lottery would not be objectionable.
