"My dad has been the biggest influence on my cynically intellectual and silly self. From the intense philosophical discussions over the dinner table to the 10-hour horror film marathon that he forced me to watch at the wee age of 11 — to help me get over my myriad of phobias, he said — my father has been my rock, my biggest influence, and fervent supporter. He has no shame. He is man enough to cry over a David Bowie jam and to be a self-proclaimed feminist. I adore the man, and hope to continue to make him proud."
