A. Ars Ardor Forma Amor
A. Founding ARCA, an international non-profit organization that studies and combats art crime
A. Wandering through Rome, alternating visits to favorite masterpieces in Roman churches with visits to favorite caffes, in a sort of "cappuccino and Caravaggio crawl." I take a perhaps unholy degree of pleasure in visiting churches to look at the art inside, and the only thing that could be better than that is eating great food and drinking great coffee between visits.
A. I always wanted to accomplish things at a younger age, and a first novel at 27 seems a bit late, although I know that, for non-abnormal people, that's plenty early
A. Were I a better artist, I'd love to be a great painter. Were I a better artist and chemist, I'd love to be an art conservator. But if I'm honest, I've always wanted to be a pro baseball player. I was really good in 8th grade.
