But he’s not all about “the beautiful game.” An incessant reader, Julian is a keen student of history, is infatuated with strategy, thinks literature is all about sex and death and hates math.

He might have been Schubert or Descartes in a former life or maybe just a lumpenprole. On occasion, he enjoys eating large amounts of Cool Whip straight from the container. Because he never sleeps, Cormac feels no need to make his bed. Currently, Cormac is obsessed with the jazz stylings of Snarky Puppy and secretly hopes that they will let him join the band one day.

Once a lacrosse player, Nick’s present-day athletic pursuits include swimming in the ocean and biking. He might have been Louis XIV or Steve McQueen in a former life, or he might have been just a regular guy. Even on his birthday, Nick refuses to eat cake because he hates it.

She is currently penning a memoir entitled: Anything a French Woman Can Do, I Can Do Better. At present, she is is obsessed with reincarnation.
