1. Tell us about a meaningful experience you and/or a loved one had with the arts (dance, media, music, theater, or visual arts), either in school or in another setting. What did you and/or your loved one gain from this experience?
With two young boys and a wife who works as a museum administrator, I’ve taken in a lot of shows and arts experiences. I have to say, my two sons Max and Miles love magic — and Elyse and I have a lot of fun going with them to these shows. There’s nothing better than seeing your kids’ faces light up as their world is expanded right before their eyes. Art, performance, and culture are vehicles to broadening the dreams of our next generation, and that’s why they’re so special to me.
