Your career is so varied. What's the most interesting place you’ve worked?
Budapest, Hungary, is a very interesting place. The architecture... I don’t know, at night, there’s something about it. The town has got its own look -- it’s got Eastern European architecture and you almost think you might see a vampire. [Laughs] That sounds dumb -- I’m not scared of vampires, right? But just, like, [imagine] seeing one on top of a building or something, lurking...
Your career has evolved so much. What do you owe that to?
I guess I resigned myself to the understanding, based on my own personal experience, that the best way to figure out this industry is to accept that you will never figure out this industry. So many things make no sense at all. Some of the most prolific, sincere, hardworking, talented people don’t really get a break. And adversely, you might have some people who are just more personality than talent per se, more of a hollow statue, and they are the most successful. These things don’t make sense, and it was a breakthrough for me to kind of accept that.
