Alex Fishkin is one of the smartest people I know (and I’ve met a few!). He’s an electrical engineer, an MBA, a patent attorney for Google, and he has a Master’s Degree from Stanford in Russian literature. He’s also totally unpretentious, easy-going and kind.
These are a few of the reasons why we have him on our Advisory Board.
And he’s also a musician. A fucking brilliant musician.
See what I mean?
AND, I am very excited to announce, he is going to be writing music for our upcoming production of Brecht’s A Man’s A Man (in my scintillating new translation!) He’s an expert on versification and prosody, so he’s going to be working with me on the passages of the play that are in verse, as well as setting Brecht’s lyrics to music.
I’m pinching myself.
