Yes, it’s a very lucrative and interesting profession. You get free time, you get to do exciting stuff, and you get to work for great, exciting people. There really aren’t a lot of jobs like this.

Do you recommend the online school?

As a general rule, I like a lot of things that are not online: a good work-life balance, no time pressure, flexibility.

I’m not necessarily trying to suggest that people don’t need to have a degree or a certificate to be successful. But it’s very important to get that degree or certificate, because it makes it easier to find work.

That made it very challenging, because I was on the spot with that, which is usually not good for people.

So you started at NYU, went to NYU, then went to NYU, and went to MIT — and now you’re working at NYU again.

When I got there… That’s going to sound weird, but I don’t remember what school you went to, it was maybe NYU, or it could have been, but it was a public high school at New York University. NYU was a big thing for me. I think my friend Brian Coddington, who I wrote for The New York Times, told me
