I’ve always been blessed, or cursed, some might say, with an insatiable curiosity, a desire to find something out about a people and a place. That’s where it all begins.

Most of the time, I don’t even watch what I do on TV. I go in, get the job done, and just know it’s nothing. It’s a job. Sometimes, I try something different, and I’ll watch out of curiosity. Generally, I don’t watch too much of what I do. Movies are basically the same, except it’s more money spent on sets.

I think my original inspiration came from just natural curiosity about science and math and biology. In particular, I would say that, as I matured, it became more a feeling of trying to avoid the waste that occurs in the world where we have 6.5 billion minds. If you’re a computer scientist, you can think of them as supercomputers.

I love when stories have something a little magical in them, and there’s wonder and curiosity. Somewhere there are people living these improbable stories, and our job is to go out and find them and bring them to the page. And so, the more surprising, the more uplifting, the more sort of even inspiring a story is, I find myself gripped by those.

I like going to museums and stuff, but I also like going out and doing lots of physical activity like camping and hiking. I like doing stuff that I’ve never done before. Curiosity is a big thing. Usually it means that people are intelligent and that they want to learn stuff about the world.

Every day, I wake up and I say, ‘Why… how… did I end up with 1.7 million Twitter followers?’ It’s freaky to me, every day, but that tells me that there’s an appetite out there that had previously been underserved. There’s an inner geek in us all, an inner bit of curiosity that people are discovering, and they like it.
