"I mean, the only real way you can learn how to write and produce TV is by watching people who are better than you do it." - from www.splitsider.com, September 2013
"I am a terrible actor. I swore off acting for good when I was in college. My feeling was that I always knew how words should sound coming out of my mouth; I could just never make them sound that way. And I finally after being in another play where I felt like I was a solid B minus, it was like, 'Oh, I don't have to do this anymore. I can write the words and have more talented people say them.' I just completely switched over to becoming a writer and a director, which was a very good call on my part." - from www.splitsider.com, September 2013
"A certain amount of TV production and writing is instinct and practice, and a lot of it is just osmosis. You just hang out with people who are good at it and learn everything that they do. I don't know that there are little pithy aphorisms or anything that I can point to about how to magically make great television. It comes from kind of grinding it out day after day after day with people who know what they're doing." - from www.splitsider.com, September 2013
